Understanding Socioeconomic Status Health Disparities Through the Lens of the Biopsychosocial Health Model
October 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research is hosting a seminar at 12 p.m. on Thursday, October 7, as part of its Brown Bag Seminar Series.
“Understanding Socioeconomic Status Health Disparities Through the Lens of the Biopsychosocial Health Model”
Presented by Samuele Zilioli, Wayne University
Samuele Zilioli is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Wayne University. His research involves understanding the bidirectional relationship between psychosocial processes (e.g., stress and emotion) and endocrine function
(e.g., glucocorticoid-related mechanisms) and the extent to which these endocrine mechanisms serve as a pathway through which stress affects other biological systems (e.g., immune, cardiovascular, and metabolic system) and physical health. His lab is particularly interested in the interplay between psychosocial and biological factors in the context of socioeconomic status and racial health disparities. Zilioli received a Ph.D. in cognitive and neural sciences from Simon Fraser University and was the recipient of the Governor General’s Gold Medal for achieving the highest academic standing upon graduation.
