Environment and Health Special Interest Group

Concerns about the interactions between environment and human health are increasing, with health professionals and policy makers, governments, international bodies, and sectors of the general public recognising the challenges posed by climate change and other environmental pressures. 

The BSA Environment and Health special interest group was established in 2015 after a series of successful symposia at Medical Sociology conferences.

The Group continues to grow.  In 2016 it ran a highly successful conference on Society, Environment and Human Health at the London School of Hygiene.

The CALL FOR PAPERS for the 2nd BSA Conference on Environment and Health is now open.  See ‘Events’ for details.
