Affiliate Butch de Castro, Professor and Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, UW School of Nursing

The Health of Philippine Emigrants (HoPE) Study offers a unique opportunity to longitudinally assess pre- and post-migration transitions in health status via the collection of a variety of biological markers.  Novel design methods will be explained and challenges posed.  Discussion will focus on problem-solving follow-up data collection amidst logistical and budgetary constraints.

The Biomarker Working Group provides a forum for informal discussions of practical and theoretical issues associated with collecting and using biomarker data in social and behavioral science research.  All are welcome.
