Consider Applying to the Upcoming IAPHS Pre-Conference Workshop on Interdisciplinary Research in Population Health and Health Disparities

Posted: 2/14/2019 (CSDE Research)

This one-day workshop on 10/1/2019 will provide an orientation to the value of interdisciplinary collaboration, challenges inherent in interdisciplinary work, and skills and resources that facilitate interdisciplinary success in population health science. Funded by a grant from NICHD, the PI, Christine Bachrach (University of Maryland) worked closely with several co-investigators including three CSDE Affiliates: Sara Curran, CSDE Director and Professor of International Studies, Sociology & Public Policy, Anjum Hajat, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, and David Takeuchi, Professor of Social Work (returning to UW in 2019).

Workshop participants will engage with leading population health and interdisciplinary scholars in interactive group exercises and case studies with a focus on the combining the knowledge, theory, and methods of diverse fields to understand and address health disparities. The workshop is open to scientists training and/or working in any field that contributes knowledge, at one or more levels of analysis (from the molecular to the societal and environmental), relevant to understanding the causes of health disparities and/or the ways in which health disparities can be ameliorated. Students who have completed at least two years of post-baccalaureate training in a specific discipline and early career scientists are especially encouraged to apply, but individuals at all career stages are welcome.
Workshop enrollment is limited to facilitate the success of small-group activities.

The workshop will take place on 10/1/2019, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM, at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel, in Seattle. Applications will be accepted through 5/5/2019. Applicants will be notified by the end of June. Funding to defray travel costs will be available on a limited basis.
