Event description
Round table event with Joanne Marsden, Howard Humphries, Jack Czauaderna and Dr Julia Udall

About this Event

An independent report in 2013* highlighted significant health inequalities within Sheffield. The life expectancy reported for men falls by nearly 8 years and almost 10 years for women across the length of the 83 bus route which links Millhouses in the south with Ecclesfield in the north. As Ilona Sagar’s Deep Structure film draws links between bodies and buildings, health and environments, this discussion will look at how care is situated within our communities, its social reproduction and how it is determined by guidelines developed from statistics and data.

*Sheffield Fairness Commission 2013

Guests include – former and current resident of Park Hill, Joanne Marsden, who established the Park Hill young mothers action group; Howard Humphries, former resident and Youth Courts social worker; Jack Czauderna, a former GP who ran a co-operative GP practice in the 1970s near Park Hill and current Chair of Darnall Wellbeing; and Dr Julia Udall, Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Sheffield Hallam University, whose research is in community organising and the urban commons.

Dr Julia Udall, Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Sheffield Hallam University, teaches across the M.Arch Course, and undergraduate history and theory. She is a director of the UKs first Social Enterprise architecture practice, Studio Polpo. Her research interests include urban commons, community economies and organising, and design pedagogy.

Jack Czauderna was a GP in Darnall in the East End of Sheffield all his working life. In the early 1980's it ran as an equal pay collective, one of three in the country. Later under different political circumstances the practice became one of the first all salaried practices in the country. Like Tony Benn who retired from being an MP to devote more time to 'politics', Jack retired from being a GP to devote more time to 'health'. He set up Darnall Wellbeing, a community health and wellbeing group to run alongside his practice and he continues this work in the Darnall community. He is also the Chair of the Pioneer Health Foundation which keeps alive the legacy of the famous 'Peckham Experiment'.
