Speaker information

Professor Alison Park, UCL Institute of Education Cohort & Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resources

Family background, infant health and early experiences of poverty can affect how well we do in school, the careers we pursue, and even how we age. This lecture shares insights from the UK's world-renowned longitudinal studies, shedding light on how our childhoods shape our adult lives, for better and for worse.
