We ran a Strategic Workshop on "Social Identity, Equality and Health", funded by European Science Foundation, that took place in Lisbon in March 2010. This workshop aimed at exploring the relationships between social identity and health and analysing its consequences to promote more inclusive social practices and a more fair health care system. In particular, the links of ageism to well-being and health were explored under this perspective. The consequences of activating age stereotypes both for self perceptions of health and for the ways others perceive older person’s health.
