Description: NIH Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Annual Robert S. Gordon Jr. Lecture

Population health has emerged as a framework for research and action to improve health and reduce health inequities. For her lecture, Dr. Diez Roux will discuss what a population health approach means, posit five facts about population health and their implications for scientific understanding and policy, and highlight key components of a population health research agenda.

Dr. Diez Roux is internationally known for her research on the social determinants of health and the study of how neighborhoods affect health. Her work on neighborhood health effects has been highly influential in the policy debate on population health and its determinants. Her research areas also include environmental and psychosocial health effects, cardiovascular disease epidemiology, and the use of multilevel methods and complex systems approaches in population health. She has led large NIH and foundation funded research and training programs in the United States and in collaboration with partners in Latin America.

This annual lecture is named in honor of Robert S. Gordon Jr., former Assistant Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service and Special Assistant to former NIH Director James Wyngaarden. Topics focus on clinical research and epidemiology. Speakers are selected by the NIH Office of Disease Prevention (ODP).
