Population Health Seminar Series Concludes April 21

Posted: April 5, 2014

Chikako Takeshita, Associate Professor of Women’s Studies, will present the seminar “Childbirth with Dignity and Love: Technological Assistance and Social Support in Maternal Care” at 4 p.m. Monday, April 21, in Room G650 of the School of Medicine Education Building. The seminar concludes the spring 2014 seminar series Population Health Research at UC Riverside.

The seminar is open to the entire campus community. The series is sponsored by the School of Medicine in coordination with faculty in the UCR School of Public Policy, the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and the Graduate School of Education.

“We had a tremendous response from across campus to last fall’s seminars, so we decided to extend the series into 2014 so that we can highlight the work of more faculty doing research in population-based health outcomes,” said David Lo, Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Sciences in the School of Medicine. “A major part of the mission of the School of Medicine is to improve community health in Inland Southern California, and as part of that mission, we believe that it would be especially valuable to bring together a cohort of researchers on campus with interests in population health research.”

Organizers of the seminar series are Dr. Lo; Anil Deolalikar, Founding Dean of the UCR School of Public Policy; and Juliet McMullin, Associate Professor of Anthropology. For more information, e-mail Dr. Lo.
