Promoting Social Science Health Equity Research during COVID-19

Dean Mark Kornbluh will talk with Sociology Professor Carrie Oser about generating social science research to promote health equity during COVID-19. They will explore the underlying needs for health equity research broadly, which have been recently highlighted due to the dual public health crises of racism and COVID-19. In addition, they will discuss practical issues associated with conducting human subjects research during a pandemic, managing and motivating diverse research teams, and deploying strategies to overcome barriers in order to promote health and well-being.
