Join us for "Stigma and Health: The Lethality of Bias" with Brenda Major, PhD, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Mark Hatzenbuehler, PhD, Associate Professor, Sociomedical Sciences, Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health.



Lunch will be provided. Location TBD.



The Chronic Disease Seminar series focuses on one of today's greatest public health challenges: the global epidemic of chronic diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and the pandemic of obesity. To foster discussion and innovation across the Mailman community on key questions such as the role of prevention and health preservation, how to reduce disparities, determining which policies and interventions will be most impactful and at what points in the life-course, and how to set goals and measure progress, the School offers talks by thought leaders outside of and among the Mailman School faculty.
