Professor Chris Phillipson is a sociologist and international leader in social gerontology.

The British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences has published a report which sets out nine local actions to reduce health inequalities, including a call from ageing experts Hal Kendig and MICRA Co-director Chris Phillipson for local age-friendly strategies.
Hal Kendig and Chris Phillipson's paper, 'Building Age-Friendly Communities: New Approaches to Challenging Health and Social Inequalities', makes the case for implementing locally-based 'age-friendly environments' that facilitate improvements in the independence, participation, health and wellbeing of older people, and, in so doing, reduce social and health inequalities.
