Food & Drink: Full Bar, hand pies, pizza rolls, and an assortment of sweets and snacks available. Event Description: The lives of many Americans are shaped by living with long-term trauma brought on by discrimination and poverty. Chronic exposure to adverse life events such as racism or racialization, gender-based prejudice, fewer opportunities for education and employment, high rates of incarceration, and systemic inequity have tangible health effects on both individuals and communities. Although uniquely complicated, science can help navigate the scope of the mechanisms and their real world impact, and hopefully help us engage the issue to redress the harm. At this Science on Tap, epidemiologist Dr. Frank A. Franklin, PhD, JD, MPH, Director of the Community Epidemiology Services at the Multnomah County Health Department, will explore the intersection of inequality and public health and the search for how to improve the well-being of vulnerable populations.

We are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if the ticket price is a hardship for you, please contact [masked] for reduced-price tickets.
