Understanding Society Podcast Series
Public health and the COVID-19 pandemic
In the third episode of our new podcast series, we take a look at the health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Series host Catherine McDonald speaks to Professor Meena Kumari, Understanding Society’s Topic Champion for Health and Biomarker research and to David Finch, Assistant Director in the Healthy Lives directorate at The Health Foundation. Together they discuss Understanding Society’s COVID-19 survey and The Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Impact inquiry. They look at what the pandemic has highlighted with regard to the social determinants of health and they share their biggest fears as we move out of the initial clutches of COVID-19.
