Green College Population Health Lecture Series
UBC is internationally recognized for its contributions to the creation of “Population Health” as an interdisciplinary field concerned with the powerful role of a host of non-medical determinants of health, development, and well-being across the life course, particularly social and economic factors. The Population Health Speakers Series aims to bring together faculty, students, practitioners and policymakers interested in these issues. The series will have a particular focus on the social sciences and their intersections with other disciplines within population health. Each monthly meeting will feature an invited scholar who is conducting cutting-edge research integrating innovative theoretical perspectives and/or developing novel methods for use in advancing population health science and improving practice and policy. The speaker's presentation and subsequent "brainstorming" dialogue with the audience will be aimed to appeal to a broad range of interests and have great potential for informing the ideas, research, and practices of faculty, students, and local agency representatives.
