CHETchat Spotlight Series: Understanding Health Inequities through the Sciences featuring Dr. Thomas McDade, PhD

Location: Lurie - Hughes Auditorium, 303 E. Superior St. Chicago, IL 60611

Date: Tuesday, January, 7, 2020

Time: 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm

Thomas McDade is a biological anthropologist who conducts research on how experience becomes biology.  In other words, how do social, economic, and cultural contexts shape human biology and health over the life course?  Much of this work focuses on the long-term effects of early environments, and the integration of biological measures into population-based, social science research. He is director of the Laboratory for Human Biology Research, and of Cells to Society (C2S): The Center on Social Disparities and Health.

Dr. McDade will discuss the intersection of biological and social sciences and how this contributes to our understanding of health inequities.
Lunch will be provided.
