Event Details

What do migrant studies tell us about future global trends in cardiometabolic disease?

1300-1400 Medical Sciences 131 AV Hill Lecture Theatre UCL

Keynote Lecture

Speaker:

Professor Nish Chaturvedi, UCL 

1300-1400 

 

Study of the impact of migration on disease has much to tell us about the causes of disease, and why populations differ in their susceptibility.   The UK is home to significant migrant populations, the largest being of South Asian or of African Caribbean origin.   While both populations have elevated risks of diabetes, South Asians are markedly more at risk of heart disease, while African Caribbeans appear protected.  This talk explores the impact of migration on health and disease, implications for health profiles of rapidly urbanising countries of origin, and likely effects on subsequent generations of these ethnic minorities in the UK.
