Grand Rounds Cycle Series: Homelessness & Menstruation Short Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Tuesday 11/14 6:00PM - 7:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)
Cycle Series is a short documentary film series created by BHCS PhD student Sara Baumann, which explores an array of menstrual experiences from a public health perspective. The goal of the series is not only to better understand menstruation by listening to individual narratives, but also to have a format that is easy to share and encourages discourse about experiences that are frequently overlooked. Experiences of menstruation are nuanced and complex. These films aim to initiate discussions about how different individuals and communities cope with menstruation, and how we can consider their unique needs in future health research, interventions, and policies.

Paul Gruenewald Thinking about Drinking: the Social Dynamics of Drinking Behavior
Thu 1/21/2016 3:15PM - 4:15PM


 

Crabtree  A115 
February 9  |  3:15-4:15

 

Paul Gruenewald of the 
Prevention Research Center (PRC) and the 
Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   

Grand Rounds sign-in will begin at 3:00 outside of A115.


This talk will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   The approaches are strongly ecological, computational, and analytic.  I argue that the social determinants of "having a drink" are multi-scale and complex, but analytically tractable.  As such, drinking behaviors, understood as a whole, constitute a model social system that can be studied to elucidate the essential social dynamics of drug use, abuse and dependence.  I begin to chart a course through this territory to enable future social ecological research to prevent alcohol problems.

Sponsored by the Pitt Public Health Office of the Dean & the BCHS Social Dynamics & Community
Health Speaker Series 

Grand Rounds sign-in will begin at 3:00 outside of A115.  Sign-in for GR credit will end promptly at 3:25. After this time no sign-ins will be permitted.
