Exploring the Linkages between Mental Well-Being and Physical Health Outcomes

SUMMER SHORT COURSE

We are sorry to announce the postponement of the Harvard-UCL Summer Short Course on Mental Well-Being and Physical Health Outcomes. We were hoping that the terrible disruption caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus would have subsided sufficiently by July to allow our programme to go ahead. But this now seems unlikely, and UCL is withdrawing support for summer short courses this year.

 

So we will be postponing the course until the summer of 2021. We remain very committed to this initiative, and are convinced that it will be a stimulating and innovative programme.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Summer Course, and we hope to be able to hold the course in July 2021.

The Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Research Department of Behavioural Science and Health at University College London (UCL) are launching a new summer short course exploring the linkages between mental well-being and physical health outcomes. The five-day course, target audience will be junior scholars (junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows) and doctoral-level graduate students, will provide attendees with a systematic and rigorous overview of the relationship between positive mental well-being and physical health, drawing on a variety of empirical methods with careful consideration of measurement issues.

 

The course will be run annually, alternating between UCL and Harvard T.H. Chan in Boston. The first course will be held at UCL in July 2020. The course will involve core faculty from both Universities.

 

The course is interdisciplinary in nature, and will cover topics including epidemiology, genetics, interventions, social determinants, biobehavioural processes, and methodology. By providing state-of-the-art, evidence-based knowledge, the course aims to prepare and inspire a future generation of scholars and researchers to work in this field. Upon completion of the course, participants will have a solid understanding of recent research and discourse on the linkages between mental well-being and physical health outcomes, and will be prepared to use this information to inform their own education, research, and teaching. In addition, participants will begin to build an interdisciplinary network of potential partners and collaborators with shared interests in the field.
