Mindy Thompson Fullilove, M.D., from Columbia University's School of Public Health and Department of Psychiatry will speak at the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research on Wednesday, March 6 from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. Her research explores the impact of spatial dislocation on current health disparities. Urban renewal projects disproportionately affect African Americans contributing to their excess morbidity and mortality and the depletion of social cohesion and other capital. Her work assesses the history and impact of urban renewal in Newark, Roanoke, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and St. Louis. Dr. Fullilove has a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health Policy Research.
As lunch will be served, please RSVP by Monday, March 4 to Peg Polansky at email@example.com or (732) 932-8415.
