Mike Esposito, Savannah Larimore, Madison Leia, and ManChui Leung Awarded Annual IAPHS Memberships

Posted: 2/16/2017 (CSDE Awards)

After reviewing applications, CSDE has awarded four Trainees with annual memberships to the Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS)! All recipients are graduate students in the Department of Sociology at UW, but they encapsulate a wide range of research interests:

  • Mike Esposito focuses on identifying if/how the ways in which social conditions (e.g., education; incarceration; marital status) operate as health inputs are contingent upon one’s social location (e.g., race, gender, age, and their intersections).
  • Savannah Larimore conducts research examining the relationship between race, place, and health in the United States.
  • Madison Leia uses longitudinal biomarker data to investigate health disparities, particularly the role of protective agents and possible interventions in the stress process.
  • ManChui Leung works on developing an interdisciplinary approach to immigrant and gender health inequities that examines how social structural processes and social factors interplay to affect health. She has also received the CSDE Demographic Methods Graduate Certificate.

Congratulations to those selected! We hope your IAPHS membership serves you well in your studies.
