BSA Medical Sociology Group Annual Conference 2016 in Birmingham, UK

I have presented my research at BSA Medical Sociology Group Annual Conference 2016 at Aston University in Birmingham, UK.

The title was “Does subjective social status vary the effects of socioeconomic status on sleeping problems? Analysis of social survey data in the area afflicted by the Great East Japan Earthquake”.
The research aims to clarify the relationship among sleeping problems, subjective social status and socioeconomic status in disaster area in Miyagi prefecture.
We found the present study shows the high prevalence of sleeping problems in the disaster-struck area. Subjective social status varied the effect of socioeconomic status on sleeping problems.

Also, I found an interesting concept on health using Bourdieu’s theory. The concept might bring into a new project.

Exciting conference!
