A Nobel Forum Symposium in Stockholm, Sweden, on 13 November 2015

The compromised physical and psychological health of millennials is now a recognized global trend that is more evident in developed countries. It is having a tangible adverse impact on individuals’ lives now, and thus also their futures. It also presents a major social challenge in terms of increased care costs and sickness absence. What measures to address this phenomenon might be effective, and are there new inter-relationships to be found at the intersections of the knowledge and research of different disciplines?

Clearly, the trend is linked to millennials’ attitudes and lifestyles. But how the healthcare sector is currently organized is also having an impact. The contemporary ‘instant generation’ is more worried about its health and expects faster—even instantaneous—access to healthcare advice and treatment.
– Could this be addressed? And if so, how?

In this interdisciplinary Swedish Initiative for Millennials’ Health, we’re inviting world-leading thinkers and participants in healthcare, medicine, psychology, business and other relevant sectors to share their insights and experiences.

Could you be a contributor? If so, please register for this one-day symposium, hosted by the Karolinska Institute Center for Gender Medicine at Nobel Forum in Stockholm, Sweden, on 13 November 2015.

Our journey will explore three specific themes, investigating how to Fuel, Rest and Move the Millennial Body & Mind. We will also address the issue of whether Embracing Sex & Gender Diversity is relevant, and if so, how.

Each theme session will include a number of keynote addresses by senior and junior speakers, followed by an open forum where we discuss ideas and findings from an interdisciplinary perspective.
