Dr. Farzan earned her Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems Program at the University of Pittsburgh. In her research, she seeks to understand, design, and implement socio-technical systems that empower individuals and groups to contribute to knowledge production and community building. Various information systems have emerged to facilitate citizen participation in communities. In this talk, Dr. Farzan will introduce a framework to identify and analyze factors that influence the sustainability of “hyper-local” information systems, present studies of the framework through one exemplary hyper-local system, and demonstrate the potential of system design to bridge digital inequalities, especially across gender and race. She will also present recent participatory action research to engage youth from underserved communities in building community technologies.

Robert Coulter, PhD, MPH, is a Post-doctoral Scholar at the University of Pittsburgh.  As a public health researcher, Dr. Coulter's mission is to reduce substance use and violence inequities for sexual and gender minority youth (SGMY; i.e., adolescents who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender [LGBT]). To accomplish this mission, he conduct three lines of inquiry: epidemiologic, intervention, and systems science research. Dr. Coulter's research agenda integrates these three approaches to (1) improve our understanding of the complex social mechanisms producing SGMY health inequities and (2) increase our knowledge about the impact of interventions on violence and substance use inequities for SGMY.

Brian J. Biroscak, PhD, MS, MA is Assistant Professor at Yale University School of Medicine. His line of research is focused by a social justice perspective with emphases on violence and injury prevention research. He has a strong research interest in system dynamics modeling, which utilizes ‘feedback’ insights and computer simulation to hypothesize, test, and refine explanations of systems change. His expertise in social marketing—which integrates commercial marketing with other approaches to influence behaviors that benefit individuals and the greater social good—is particularly valuable for prevention efforts

Mon 5/21/2018 8:30AM - 10:00AM
University Club - Ballroom B

Winner of the 2018 Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, the ProPublica series “LOST MOTHERS” explored why the U.S  spends more per capita on health care than any other country, yet also has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the developed world. This reporting called out those culpable and showed a way forward that could save lives and families that are too often destroyed by preventable tragedies. Keynote speaker ADRIANA GALLARDO was among the reporters who captured the stories of hundreds of women and brings to our symposium a fresh perspective on the maternal experience, gaps in data and reporting, and how we can address issues of accountability.

Women in the United States are more likely to die from childbirth or pregnancy-related causes than women in other developed countries. Research suggests that half of these deaths may be preventable and that racial disparities persist. The risk of pregnancy-related deaths for black women is three to four times higher than those of white women.

SisterFriend and the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences are proud to welcome the author of Periods Gone Public, Jennifer Weiss-Wolf as she explores why periods have become a prominent, and even bipartisan political cause. From eliminating the “tampon tax,” to enacting new laws that ensure access to affordable, safe products, menstruation is no longer something to whisper about. The woman Bustle dubbed one of the nation’s “badass menstrual activists," Weiss-Wolf will share her firsthand account in the fight for menstrual equity and will challenge the audience to face stigma head-on, and to elevate an agenda that recognizes both the power—and the absolute normalcy—of menstruation.

February 9  |  3:15-4:15

 

Paul Gruenewald of the 
Prevention Research Center (PRC) and the 
Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   

Grand Rounds sign-in will begin at 3:00 outside of A115.


This talk will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   The approaches are strongly ecological, computational, and analytic.  I argue that the social determinants of "having a drink" are multi-scale and complex, but analytically tractable.  As such, drinking behaviors, understood as a whole, constitute a model social system that can be studied to elucidate the essential social dynamics of drug use, abuse and dependence.  I begin to chart a course through this territory to enable future social ecological research to prevent alcohol problems.

Grand Rounds sign-in will begin at 3:00 outside of A115.  Sign-in for GR credit will end promptly at 3:25. After this time no sign-ins will be permitted.
