  • Department of Epidemiology & Public Health
  • UCL's Department of Epidemiology and Public Health is hosting a seminar to discuss the findings of the latest Health Survey for England (HSE) report.

    The seminar, chaired by Professor Sir Michael Marmot (UCL Epidemiology and Public Health), will take place between 2pm and 6pm on Thursday 11 June in the Basement Lecture Theatre at 1-19 Torrington Place.

    The HSE is an annual survey of a nationally-representative sample of the general population living in private homes in England.  

    Each year, it has a different focus and the latest survey, HSE 2007, examines healthy lifestyles: knowledge, attitudes and behaviour. 

    The seminar will present findings from this report together with secondary analysis and other uses of Health Survey for England data.

    Printed copies of the summary will be available at the meeting or you can download a copy using the link above.

    If you would like to attend the seminar please email Barbara Carter-Szatynska.
