All PhD students and researchers at KI are most welcome to a seminar held by Professor Johan Hallqvist.

Recent improvements in the methodology to estimate mediation and interaction have made it possible to calculate measures of relevance for setting targets and priorities in policy for health equity which include both mechanisms, i.e. equalize exposure and equalize effects.

In this seminar, Professor Hallqvist will discuss these new possibilities and, also, the importance of differential susceptibility and vulnerability for the choice of preventive strategies, including approaches that target high-risk individuals, whole populations and vulnerable groups.
