Lisa Berkman, PhD, Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and of Epidemiology, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Director, Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, will present “Chaos or community: The role of social ties in shaping population health.”

The Hybrid Social Demography Seminar (SDS) series at the Center for Population and Development Studies provides a lively forum for scholars from across the university to discuss in-progress social scientific and population research. Social demography includes work that uses demographic methods to describe and explain the distribution of social goods across populations. The hybrid series offers presentations on a wide variety of topics such as family, gender, race/ethnicity, population health—including mortality, morbidity, and functional health—inequality, immigration, fertility, and the institutional arrangements that shape and respond to population processes.
