Speaker information

Hosted by Professor Nick Tyler CBE, Head of UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering; Pro-Provost, South Asia
Chaired by Dr Michael Stewart, Senior Lecturer in Anthropology; Founder, Open City Docs at UCL

The ways in which people interact with others and institutions in relation to health are constantly changing, being influenced by new technologies, as well as more traditional forms of communication. The topics in this session will provoke discussion around some of the varying and complex ways in which people social network around health.

A group of PhD students and researchers working at UCL and with linked projects, including the Lancet Commission on Culture and Health, will present their work. They will discuss examples of the complicated ways in which individuals, patients, community groups working in health and policymakers interact (or miscommunicate) through both traditional and novel channels. It will consider the impact of personal and group interaction, informal networks, social media and new technologies on people's health and healthcare-seeking behaviours.
