Event description

Description

Ethnic inequalities in health are a fundamental aspect of wider health inequality requiring specific, sustained attention. DASH (Determinants of adolescent wellbeing and health), DEAL (DiEt and Active Living) and FOODEY (Food, Diabetes and Ethnicity) are empirical studies examining the role of ethnicity in a range of physical and mental health outcomes, drawing on life course and participatory approaches. Strategies used to engage with a range of stakeholders in schools and neighbourhood hubs, maintaining community links, will be discussed. Key findings from these studies will be presented highlighting intersections between social, cultural and psychosocial factors in the patterning of health by ethnic group, and the complexity of cultural frameworks relevant to health improvement activities.
