While stress can be a universal experience, it doesn’t manifest equally amongst certain population groups. Women, people in lower socio-economic groups, and people in minority groups are likely to experience higher stress rates, which could lead to further inequalities in health outcomes through the course of a lifetime.
In light of this issue, Durham University organised a Health Summit on inequalities-related stress, with colleagues from LARIA, the Wolfson Research Institute, and Fuse. This event was hugely popular and brought together a wonderful mix of delegates and speakers from policy, practice and academia.
