Stress and Health Disparities: Bridging Laboratory, Clinical, and Population Scientific Approaches

This two-day transdisciplinary symposium will highlight the complex ways in which stressful exposures contribute to disparities in disease and premature mortality. Lectures, discussions, and breakout sessions will address cutting-edge research on the role of psychosocial stress in human physiology and behavior, with a focus on how stress influences cancer and cardiovascular disease risk. The goal is to engage the Harvard community in innovative research approaches to better understand the role of stress in the etiology of disease, and to facilitate new collaborations among researchers from diverse fields committed to fostering a deeper understanding of the roles of stress response in human health and health disparities. Please see the website for more information on speakers and session information.

For those who are interested but cannot attend, a video will be made available on the website after the event has taken place .
