Critical Public Health: Quantifying Selves

Monday 2/13 12:00PM - 1:30PM
4128 Public Health, Meeting Room

The Critical Public Health journal club seeks to spark critical and reflexive conversations with attention to deeper social and historical, 'unintended consequences' of intervention and research, and dynamics of power. We will also seek to identify alternative frameworks to enact in research and practice. Interdisciplinary and open to all!
