What is Health Equity?

When: May 30th  17:30-19:00pm (CEST)

Where: Vorhoelzer Forum (In Person) and Virtually (Zoom)


Registration Deadline: May 23 2022

At this event, scholars from a range of disciplines and global locations will discuss how we can better understand and work towards health equity in biomedical research fields, such as genetics and epigenetics. We will particularly explore current inequities across and within different societies in the Global South and North and how collaborations between the social sciences and biomedicine could contribute to improving the usefulness of biomedical research for health equity struggles.
