#HASTALKS is a seminar series curated by The Department of Health, Aging & Society at McMaster University.

Reflections on the State of Evidence: The Impact of Societal Conditions on Health

As research on the impact of societal conditions on health has evolved, there has been a push to move from the general to the specific, for example, to move from characterizing health status associated with various welfare regimes, to evaluating the health effects of specific social policies. This lecture will provide an overview of this transition and will discuss some of the progress it has permitted, as well as some of the tensions that it has introduced.
