Research Mixer: WORK AND LATER LIFE COURSE HEALTH
Wednesday, October 27th | 10:00 - 11:00 am CST | Zoom Link
Following the panel discussion, we’ll take a quick break and then there will be time to discuss potential research ideas starting at 11:15 am [same Zoom link].
The goal is to stimulate collaborative interdisciplinary research on work as a social determinant of health/well-being -- and of disparities in both social inclusion and health/well-being -- among older Americans. Work is defined broadly including paid work and self-employment, but also family caregiving and volunteer work.
To jumpstart ideas we have invited three experts in the field to the research mixer. We will then open up the meeting for a wide-ranging conversation responding to your questions, comments and interests, as well as fruitful data sources, and possible next steps.
We will be joined by:
Dr. Bruce Link, Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Sociology at the University of California Riverside and Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology and Sociomedical Sciences at the Mailman School of Public Health of Columbia University.
Dr. Mo Wang, Lanzillotti-McKethan Eminent Scholar Chair at the Warrington College of Business at University of Florida.
Dr. Rada Dagher, Scientific Program Director at NIMHD.
Marti DeLiema is a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work. Professor DeLiema is an interdisciplinary gerontologist, driven to understand how our society can cultivate long, healthy, and fulfilling lives for all citizens. Using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, Professor DeLiema studies financial victimization using focus groups, in-depth interviews, and survey and panel data.
