Senior Research Fellow at CHEMP, Dr Peter Meylakhs, recently attended a workshop at Warwick University (UK)
CHEMP is pleased to announce the release of a new publication by CHEMP Director Christopher J Gerry and CHEMP Research Fellow, Diana Quirmbach. The paper, “Gender, education and Russia’s tobacco epidemic: A life-course approach” examines the smoking histories of Russian’s surveyed in the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE (RLMS-HSE) and the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS).The authors examine the dynamics of smoking patterns over the past 7 decades and find that smoking rates differ most strongly by gender within all cohorts, but that this differential has decreased over time, driven by increases in female smoking and more recently by decreases in smoking among men. The publication appears in Social Science and Medicine, a Q1 journal and one of the leading outlets in the Public Health field.
The 2nd CHEMP work in progress seminar took place on Tuesday 12th April at Kantemirovskaya from 3.30 pm until around about 6.00 pm.
The purpose of such workshops will be to share ideas across the workstreams and with colleagues outside of the workstreams, provide an opportunity for individuals to present work in progress and receive feedback, and in particular, to provide an informal setting for our CHEMP interns to discuss and present the progress of their work.
The Centre for Health Economics, Management and Policy held it’s first ‘work in progress’ seminar on December 23rd 2015. The seminar addressed one of the main challenges facing both developed and emerging economies – namely, that of ageing populations. Three promising working papers were presented covering the interaction between mental health and social support; the role of social capital in healthy ageing; and the problems of using subjective health measures in health related research.
