Speaker information

Giuseppe Costa, Professor of Epidemiology & Public Health, University of Turin, Giuseppe Costa is a Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Medical School and the Statistics and Economic Sciences School of the University of Turin. He is an epidemiologist and a physician. His research specialties include epidemiology, social epidemiology, occupational epidemiology and health systems and quality of care research. He has authored and co-authored many papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals. He has coordinated several studies funded by the Italian Ministry of Health on health inequalities and represents Italy in the main European scientific networks for comparing health inequities. He has participated in many European projects such as LIFEPATH, MINDMAP, Euro-Healthy, DEMETRIQ and SOPHIE.

The talk will be delivered by Professor Giuseppe Costa and will focus on the Italian "Marmot" review commissioned by the Ministry of Health in Italy, the first ministry in a southern European country to do so. This work has established facts, mechanisms, solutions and responsibilities around social inequalities in health and identified new ideas around priority and target setting. The work shows that health inequalities may be smaller than has been observed in other population groups with similar social inequalities and highlights why this particular resilience deserves further attention from researchers.

It will be followed by drinks and nibbles from 6 pm and there will be the chance for discussions with colleagues and Professor Costa.
