Tim van Meurs’s research is primarily focused on the role of socioeconomic status in the uptake of health information and health campaigns. His PhD project “How to provide health information to those who need it most” is funded by the Erasmus Initiative Smarter Choices for Better Health. In this mixed-methods project, Tim studies why lower socioeconomic strata disregard health information more than higher strata and subsequently aims to diminish the socioeconomic inequality in health. Combining a background in cultural sociology with insights from public health research, he focuses on the role of institutional distrust in this health gap.
