#TwiceRemoved with Addressing Health

Twice Removed Series 2 Episode 6

Historian Laura Newman shares the work of Addressing Health, a project dedicated to examining and exploring the health of Victorian and Edwardian postal workers.

What health issued ailed these ancestors? How did their work impact their health? How were they treated and how did they try to prevent illness? Did they have a concept of stress? How did they view and treat mental health illnesses?

Laura Newman, from Addressing Health answers all your questions and more!

A Spotlight on Addressing Health

Addressing Health: Morbidity, Mortality and Occupational Health in the Victorian and Edwardian Post Office is a three-year project exploring the timing and geography of ill health, and the responses of the Post Office and the workforce. By tracing workers through from retirement until they died, the project also explores the links between ill health and mortality.

The Post Office was a major British employer and understanding the shifts in the pattern of morbidity and mortality of its employees will transform the understanding of health during this important period of epidemiological change.
