Dr Doug and Dave tackle the hugely important topic of inequality and how it impacts ageing.


Centred on the book Elderhood by author Louise Aronson of the United States, the duo discusses the often-grim reality of ageing in less affluent areas.

People in wealthier areas are living longer than those in deprived areas, and this gap is opening over time.

These inequalities were described by the UK NHS as “unjust and avoidable differences in public health across the population”.

Join Dr Doug and Dave as they dig into the data captured on the topic and discuss just what all this means for ageing today.
