HELI 2010 Alumna Tiffany Green, PhD, will present the annual Labelle lecture this Wednesday, November 11!
The Annual Labelle Lectureship Series was established by the Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis (CHEPA) and the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impacts at McMaster University in memory of CHEPA founding member Roberta Labelle.
In the autumn of each year, a health services researcher with emerging recognition and an inter-disciplinary approach to research gives a general interest lecture on a topic in the broadly defined areas of health economics and/or health policy. The 2020 Labelle Lecture will be presented virtually by Dr. Tiffany Green, an economist and population health scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an expert in racial/ethnic and nativity disparities in reproductive health.
The lecture will take place from 3 to 5 pm. Registration is required. To register, follow this link: https://mcmaster.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYlcOitqj0oEtPeSICxxpwswQOjue3Zc-Gd
In her presentation, entitled “Saving Black Women and Babies: Leveraging Data and Community Engagement to Achieve Health Equity,” Dr. Green will draw from her research which focuses primarily on understanding the individual-, family-, and structural-level determinants of disparities in women’s health and birth outcomes. Her mission is to shed light on how and why Black women, regardless of socio-economic status, experience the worst maternal and child birth outcomes of any racial/ethnic group – and what evidence-based solutions might ameliorate these persistent inequalities in health and wellbeing.
