TEDx talk on health equity

TEDx talk on health equity

Prashanth NS, Assistant Director at IPH was recently invited to speak at a TEDx event organised by a school in Hyderabad. Given his research interests on health equity, he chose to build his talk around a foundational element of public health itself: what makes one healthy, is it a matter of chance (for eg. through genes), or by choice (through specific “healthy” behavioural choices, one “chooses”).
