Department of Epidemiology Seminar Series

Speaker:

Ana Diez Roux, MD, PhD
Dana and David Dornsife Dean and Distinguished University Professor of Epidemiology, Dornsife School of Public Health, Drexel University

Abstract:

In a context where epidemiologic research has been heavily influenced by a biomedical and individualistic approach, the naming of “social epidemiology” allowed explicit emphasis on the social production of disease as a powerful explanatory paradigm and as critically important for interventions to improve population health. This talk will briefly highlights key substantive areas of focus in social epidemiology over the past 30 years, reflects on major advances and insights, and identifies challenges and possible future directions.
