The Role of Work in Health Disparities in the United States Workshop

Date Mon, Sep 28 - Tue, Sep 29
Time 10: 00 AM - 5: 00 PM
Location NIH Videocast


The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) is hosting a two-day, virtual workshop on "The Role of Work in Health Disparities in the United States Workshop". This workshop will promote multidisciplinary health disparities research by convening experts from the research fields of health disparities, population sciences, labor economics, occupational health, epidemiology, and organizational sociology and psychology to consider work as a social determinant and identify potential mechanisms and interventions to address health disparities.

This virtual event is FREE and open to the public. Registration is not required.

Work is a social determinant that may explain a considerable amount of health disparities for race/ethnic minority and low socioeconomic status populations. The discussions of the workshop topic are:

  1. Theoretical and conceptual foundations
  2. Measures/indicators and analytical approaches
  3. Key mechanisms (occupational segregation, worksite segregation, intergenerational transmission)
  4. Upstream and systemic pathways

This workshop will bring together experts in health disparities, population sciences, labor economics, occupational health, epidemiology, and organizational sociology and psychology.
