Organisation profile

The Centre for Health and Society is a transdisciplinary centre established to promote understanding of how social factors shape individual and population health and clinical care. We look across society at broad-ranging questions which examine the ways in which technology, lifestyle, commerce, ethics, economics, politics and culture intersect with health.

About Us

At the Centre for Health and Society we want to understand the ways that society impacts and shapes individual and population health, what are called the social determinants of health. How healthy you are is shaped and determined by factors well beyond clinical or genetic background. Factors such as where you live, where you work, and where you go to school are just as important when it comes to health. At the Centre we examine the many ways that technology, lifestyle, commerce, ethics, economics, politics and culture intersect with health.

The Centre acts as a hub, connecting a network of scholars from across Aston University, and beyond, to explore how we can improve people’s health and wellbeing. It includes leading academics who combine internationally-recognised research with a wealth of experience working with organisations responsible for policy-development, professional regulation, and health promotion. Our members work with colleagues from across disciplines to develop innovative approaches to healthcare delivery, policy and practice that better support health and wellbeing in the real world.
