Closing plenary - influencing health along the life course

Exploring the life course theory which approaches health as an ‘integrated continuum’ rather than as disconnected and unrelated stages. It suggests that there is a ‘complex interplay’ of social and environmental factors mixed with biological, behavioural, and psychological issues that help to define health outcomes across the course of a person's life.
