Ann Arbor MI 03-20-2018 03-20-2018

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, March 20 at 2 p.m. (EST) for a virtual session featuring Dr. Edward Ruiz-Narvaez, Associate Professor of Nutritional Sciences.

Dr. Ruiz-Narvaez's talk is titled The psychosocial factors and diabetes in African American women: the Black Women's Health Study. African American (AA) women are disproportionately affected by obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D), with a heavy burden of associated health problems. Such disparity may be in part due to a higher exposure to chronic stressors among AA women. The present talk will present results on the association of different psychosocial stressors with risk of T2D and weight gain in the Black Women's Health Study (BWHS), an ongoing cohort study of 59,000 AA women.

You will not need to install any software for the session. Once you register, a confirmation will be sent to your email with a date and time reminder, a hyperlink for the info session, and instructions for logging in. Please email sph.inquiries@umich.edu if you have questions.
