Informal health expertise affects our health


On Wednesday, Petra Persson, Stanford University and affiliate to IFN, presented research showing that the likelihood is greater that people with access to informal health expertise, such as a doctor or a nurse in the family, will be 80 or older. At the seminar at SNS, Mårten Palme, Stockholm University, commented on the research based on his own studies on the connection between education and health. The main theme of the seminar was "how inequalities in health and lifespan can be reduced".
