Kaori Fujishiro, Ph.D.
Senior Epidemiologist, National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH)
Dr. Fujishiro’s research investigates the social patterning of health as a reflection of the dynamic interactions between individuals and their work environment. In her talks, she will argue that occupational characteristics are an untapped dimension of socioeconomic status that helps us better understand how health disparities are created. Focusing on occupation also can suggest additional points of intervention to reduce health disparities. Dr. Fujishiro will demonstrate the potential for advancing health disparities research with an occupational perspective.
