Public Health PhD students Isaac M. Danat and Weiju Zhou - under the supervision of Professor Ruoling Chen, Dr Alex Hopkins and Dr Angela Clifford, Faculty of Education, Health and Wellbeing - successfully reported their new research findings at the 6th International Conference on Epidemiology & Public Health, which was held in Paris recently.
Analysing data from a large population-based health survey cohort of older people in China, Isaac investigated “Risk factors for abnormal weights in older adults” and Weiju examined “Impact of socioeconomic deprivation on survival in people with angina”.
They gave oral presentations at the conference to a wide range of audiences who came from different countries, including USA, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, China, India and New Zealand.
Their research data has attracted potential collaborations with health research scientists around the world. Isaac and Weiju also took the opportunity at this event to promote University of Wolverhampton research and teaching programmes. Both PhD students were supported by FEHW QR funding to attend the conference.
