Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University

Americans live three years less than their counterparts in Sweden, Northerners in England live two years less than Southerners, and men in Stockton-on-Tees town centre live 15 years less than those in the suburbs. This talk examines these international, regional and local health divides, demonstrating how and why geography is a matter of life and death.


Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. 

Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
