The Stockholm Health Day 2022: Workshop on the topic of Children and Health

Researchers at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) organise The Stockholm Health Day, a workshop on the topic of children and health. The workshop aims to bring together researchers to lay the foundation for a network within health economics.

Evidence from economics and other domains suggests that childhood environments can have persistent impacts on numerous later life outcomes, primarily through the accumulation of human capital. Health status during infancy and early childhood play a central role in the accumulation of human capital, and explains a significant share of the variation in adult health and non-health outcomes. We hope that the workshop will provide a venue where researchers can discuss ideas, present new findings, receive feedback, and start new collaborations.

Date and location: October 20-21, 2022 at Stockholm University (Aula Magna on floor 7).
