Join us for the upcoming FIU-RCMI Professional Development Seminar, Implicating Race in Disease: Biosocial Approaches to Women's Health Disparities Research, facilitated by Dr. Jada Benn Torres. In this talk, Dr. Benn Torres will focus on how race is implicated in women’s health to discuss how the irreconcilability surrounding race in research impedes understanding of how genetic, social, and cultural heterogeneity interact to impact the distribution of disease. Holistically understanding the role of race in shaping health disparities will require more critical approaches to race that consider how social and biological factors interface to influence health and disease.
