NIMHD: The Role of Work in Health Disparities in the United States Workshop
The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) is holding a conference on the role of work as a social determinant of disease on September 28 and 29, 2020. Those who were not invited participants cannot ask questions or make comments but there is a link to listen in. Here is the link to the NIH VideoCast. According to the organizers: "The goal of this workshop is to identify priority research areas to understand and address the role of work as a social determinant that contributes to racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities. This workshop will increase the ability to integrate research fields of health disparities, labor economics, occupational health, epidemiology, political science, and organizational sociology and psychology using a population-focused lens, to identify potential mechanisms, methodological considerations, and system-level influences in relation to the role of work in health disparities."
