Traversing Divides: Interdisciplinary Research in Population Health and Health Disparities (IAPHS Pre-Conference Workshop, 10/1/2019)

Posted: 4/15/2019 (Conference)

Sheraton Seattle Hotel

Seattle, WA

This one-day workshop just prior to the IAPHS Annual Conference 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.  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.  View the provisional agenda here.

The workshop is open to scientists training and/or working in any field that contributes knowledge relevant to understanding the causes of health disparities at multiple levels of analysis (from the molecular to the societal and environmental) and/or the ways in which health disparities can be ameliorated.  Students and early career scientists are especially encouraged to apply, but individuals at all career stages are welcome. Students must have completed at least two years of post-baccalaureate training in a discipline.

Applications will be accepted through May 5, 2019. Applicants will be notified by the end of June. Workshop enrollment is limited to facilitate the success of small-group activities.

Funding to defray travel costs will be available on a limited basis.  Please contact Sue Bevan (sbevan@iaphs.org) with any questions.

This workshop is supported by a grant from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities and by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
