Passionate about issues related to social justice and global health equity? Come join our second talk of the the Scholars for Health Equity Speaker Series (SHESS) on Wednesday, March 26th, from 6:00 - 7:00 pm at SFU Harbour Centre (Room 1425)! 

The goal of the SHESS is to bring graduate students and researchers from a number of disciplines together in order to discuss issues related to global health and social justice. In particular, we are interested in exploring the types of research methods commonly adopted to address global health and social justice issues and to learn about the challenges that researchers have faced implementing these methods. Our second session will feature Dr. Michael Hayes from University of Victoria.

Dr. Hayes’ research interests include health inequities, social gradients in health outcomes, social geographies of health, small area analysis of health outcomes, health policy and health and news media. He is also interested in work on disabilities and health inequities. He is the co-founding editor of the journal Health and Place and has been involved in several advisory committees on health for both the provincial and federal governments. Dr. Hayes joined the University of Victoria following time spent at Simon Fraser University as a founding member of the Faculty of Health Sciences.

Please RSVP as the space is limited. If you don't have a Facebook account and interested in the event, please send an email
