With Alistair Woodward, Tuesday 28 July 2015 7.30 -8.30 pm.

Life expectancy in New Zealand is tracking upwards year on year, and indeed, for men at least, we are closing again on the world leaders. What are the implications for health care, public health priorities and social policy? This session will be based on a book - The Healthy Country? A History of Life and Death in New Zealand, by Alistair Woodward and Tony Blakely, recently published by Auckland University Press.

Alistair Woodward is a Professor in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Auckland. Present research projects include impacts of rapid climate change in China, the history of birthweight and the influence of road design on transport choices.
