March 2023 SRITC Virtual Cafe: BYOC

This month we will be joined by Charles Musselwhite, Professor of Psychology, holding a Chair in the Psychology Department at Aberystwyth University. He is going to talk about the health side of transport issues people face in rural areas. You can expect to hear the answers to the following questions by the end of the Cafe:
• We all know that mobility can be extra challenging in rural areas but how do such challenges effect people’s physical and mental health?
• How do we maximise the health benefits of living in a rural area when mobility can be so restrictive?
• How does this play out among different groups of people living in rural areas and does it widen health inequalities?
• And finally, can rural areas be resourceful and use their sense of community and social capital to maintain health?

As always, there will be plenty of time after the presentations for Q&A and an opportunity to share your experiences and stories of living, working and supporting the travel needs of your community.

Remember BYOC means Bring Your Own Cake so get baking (or buying) so you can share your photos and create “cake envy".
