Full event details

Maryhill Road in Glasgow runs from central Glasgow north west through North Glasgow to Bearsden in East Dunbartonshire. It’s a short journey by car but one which encapsulates many of the issues surrounding poverty and ill-health in post-industrial communities. Life expectancy for an adult male in North Glasgow is 10 years shorter than in neighbouring Bearsden! This talk explores some of the reasons for such a variation and introduces students to the use of visual indicators to help contextualise national statistics. The talk will appeal to those students undertaking coursework activities on poverty and deprivation or those seeking additional material to enhance exam answers.

 

The Discover Programme consists of subject-specific lectures and workshops aimed at Year 12 or Year 1 college students, delivered by academics that teach at the University. 

These sessions are designed to both complement the curriculum and introduce new subject areas.
