Please join The Diversity & Inclusion Group (DIG) for Addressing Health Disparities with Neuroscience: Views by Two. This new virtual seminar series brings together two scientists from disparate fields to discuss how basic, translational and clinical neuroscience research can inform, and be informed by, research on health disparities and health inequities.
The inaugural seminar, At the Crossroads of Social Determinants and Biology: Identifying Implications for Future Research, will explore the intersection of social determinants and biological mediators of substance use disorders and biobehavioral health.
