BC3 Seminars

Manuel Franco, Associate Professor

University of Alcalá and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Venue: Sede Building (Room Aketxe), Scientific Park of the University of the Basque Country,

March 29 (2023), 12:00-1:00pm CET


Urban health research has greatly improved in quality, quantity, and depth over the past 20 years. Just in the last decade, we have seen a large increase in publications, scientific journals, conferences, books, and courses. This growth highlights the fact that there is a large and growing amount of knowledge that could be translated into policies to improve population health and reduce health inequities in cities worldwide. At the same time, social processes such as urbanization, urban renewal, segregation, and gentrification, to name a few, along with the uninterrupted advance of climate change pose evolving challenges to population health, health equity, and environmental sustainability in cities.
Manuel Franco will include in his seminar several examples of urban health research conducted across the globe and specifically in Madrid focusing on health outcomes such as COVID-19 and non-communicable diseases, while further developing urban health research regarding urban environment measures and participatory methodologies, among others.
