Learning from efforts to reduce health inequalities in the UK

Thursday, 2019/04/25, 16:00 h

Dr. Katherine Smith

Kat Smith is a Professor of Public Health Policy at the University of Edinburgh. Over the past ten years, her main research focus has been on analysing policies that impact on public health and on understanding how academics, corporations and advocacy organisations all seek to influence these policies. She is particularly interested in policies affecting health inequalities. Her research draws attention to the role that different genres of ideas (as opposed to evidence) play in shaping policy decisions, to the various ways in which policy shapes research (as well as vice versa) and to the methods and strategies large corporations use to influence policies affecting health outcomes.
