CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
HEALTH GEOGRAPHY SESSION AT IAG/NZGS 2018
12-14 July 2018, University of Auckland

Convenors: A/Prof Neil Coffee & Dr Lukar Thornton (Health Geography Study Group)

Keywords: Health; Spatial; Contextual effects; Place and health; Neighbourhood

Session overview
There is increasing recognition of the importance of place as an influence on health. It is therefore imperative that the discipline of Health Geography continues to grow. Existing place and health research is often embedded in the field of public health and epidemiology, and therefore the attention to the measurement place is often undervalued. Geographers have an important role in the regard by providing unique expertise into how to best measure and incorporate the role of place and space in this field of work. This session invites contributions from those seeking to advance our understanding of Health Geography. There will be a particularly interest in studies that utilise novel approaches.

Abstract due date: Friday 6th April, 2018.
Abstract submission details can be found on the following website: https://nzgsconference2018.org/submissions/

Note that we are looking at once again hosting a Health Geography workshop on Wednesday July 11th. Further detail of this workshop will follow at a later date.

In the meantime if you have any questions, please contact the Health Geography co-convenors Associate Professor Neil Coffee or Dr Lukar Thornton at: iag_hgsg at gmail.com
