1) More years of good health and wellbeing. Mission impossible? Jörg Huber Professor of Health Sciences, Inaugural lecture –
Thursday 29 October 2015 at 6.30pm Asa Briggs Hall Checkland Building,
Life expectancy has been increasing for some time now and further increases are expected. However, the number of years we live a healthy life has barely increased. This conundrum of long lives in combination with poor health and wellbeing has been an interest of mine for some time now although not always deliberately so. Improving health and wellbeing has been the focus of many efforts, and my own research reflects some of these efforts: research on physical activity, diet, smoking and alcohol consumption, and above all on diabetes as a major chronic condition will look at some of the options which are available to achieve the impossible: better health, better wellbeing and a better life.
