ORWH’s quarterly lecture series, “Diverse Voices: Intersectionality and the Health of Women,” amplifies research that incorporates an intersectional framework and addresses the breadth of topics relevant to the health of women. The next session “Cancer Disparities: Methods and Measurement of Racial and Ethnic Diversity” will feature presentations from Drs. Laura Fejerman and Scarlett Lin Gomez. During the session, attendees will learn about (1) the relationship between genetic ancestry and breast cancer risk in Hispanic/Latina women; and (2) research on cancer in the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) populations, focusing on approaches to go beyond racial and ethnic categories to understand cancer patterns and risk, and prognostic factors in distinct groups.

The event will be held on January 26, 2023, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST. Registration is required. Click here for more information and a link to the registration page. 

The 2022 season of Diverse Voices has explored cancer in women, environmental exposures and disparities in pregnancy outcomes, COVID-19 and women, and violence and women. Recordings of all previous sessions are located on the U3 Interdisciplinary Research webpage.
