About this event

The Covid-19 pandemic exposed a wide range of social and health vulnerabilities in more deprived areas. This session will explore the way these manifested, contributory factors and what was done locally to tackle them. It will also reflect on learning from the experience that is relevant not just to future pandemics but ongoing challenges of tackling chronic health inequalities.

These seminars are held on Wednesdays in term time at 12:00-13:00

Seminars this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @CASE_LSE for updates.
