Health Equity and Working Life / HEAL
The research group Health equity and working life (HEAL) is led by Anna Nyberg, associated professor of psychology and licensed psychologist. HEAL focuses on increased understanding of how health equality can be improved, with primary focus on working life. This includes research on health effects of the gender segregated labour market and effects of occupational rehabilitation initiatives for individuals with short- and long-standing illnesses. We also conduct research on people with various cognitive and intellectual disabilities and their health-related living conditions.
