Speaker information

Dr Russell Viner, Reader in Adolescent Health, UCL Institute of Child Health, Russell Viner is an academic paediatrician (currently Reader in Adolescent Health) and adolescent physician at the UCL Institute of Child Health in London, working clinically at University College Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London.

Adolescent health is increasingly on the global health agenda. Unlike younger children, adolescents appear to have benefited little from the epidemiological transition. While adolescence was previously seen as the healthiest time of life, young people transitioning into employment and marriage may be particularly vulnerable to the effects of globalisation and social and economic change.
