Challenging Assumptions and Injustice: Lessons for Health Equity Academic Researchers

April 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rutgers Health Equity Academic Researchers (RU-HEAR) in the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs is hosting a keynote presentation and discussion at 10 a.m. on Thursday, April 21.

“Challenging Assumptions and Injustice: Lessons for Health Equity Academic Researchers” will be presented by Lisa Bowleg, a professor of applied social psychology at George Washington University and the founder and president of the Intersectionality Training Institute.

The subtitle of Bowleg’s presentation is “Prompt Black and other health equity researchers of color to radically imagine their research as a transformative tool to advance health equity.” The event will examine and explore:

  • how intersectionality challenges conventional assumptions as well as theoretical and methodological approaches to health equity research
  • the importance of qualitative approaches and intersectional frameworks
  • system- and structural-level mitigation strategies for researchers, departments, and universities

Online and in-person at the College Avenue Student Center, Multipurpose Room, 125 College Ave., New Brunswick
