Dr Elizabeth Breeze "has been involved in the demographic aspects of environmental sustainability since the 1960s. She joined the Population Working Group of the then Conservation Society in about 1973. That group was one of the first to focus on population numbers as a key cause of environmental degradation.

"In 1974-5 she took the Diploma in Population Growth and Development at University College Cardiff. Working on health surveys led her to take an MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

"During the next 10 years most of her work at LSHTM was on health inequalities among the older members of the UK population and this formed the topic of her PhD.

"Dr Breeze currently works on the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing at University College London. She has a particular interest in the positive contribution of older people to society." [1]
