Homelessness and Health Among Veterans, May 24

Category : News/Events

This is a live webinar scheduled for May 24, 2022 from 12 – 1:30 pm ET.

Veterans experience higher rates of both homelessness and suicide compared with their non-Veterans peers. In addition, Veterans experiencing adverse social determinants of health—such as homelessness—are at increased risk of suicide and other poor health outcomes. In this webinar, Dr. Ann Elizabeth Montgomery, Associate Professor at the UAB School of Public Health, will explore the concept of homelessness and housing instability generally and experiences among Veterans specifically. We will discuss how homelessness is defined and enumerated, pathways into homelessness, trajectories of homelessness, and multi-level interventions to prevent and end homelessness. We will also explore the intersection among homelessness (and other adverse social determinants of health), Veterans’ use of tailored services to address these needs, and their experience of particular health conditions and outcomes, including suicide ideation, attempt, and death.

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Describe the experience of homelessness among Veterans.
  • Identify interventions to prevent and end homelessness among Veterans.
  • Describe the association between the use of tailored services to address adverse social determinants of health and Veterans’ risk of suicide mortality.

Addressing LGBTQ Health Risk and Resilience in the Southeast, May 10

Category : News/Events

This is a live webinar scheduled for May 10, 2022 from 12 – 1:30 pm ET.

Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) face a disproportionate number of structural, programmatic, and individual-level barriers to address their health and wellbeing. LGBTQ communities also have developed incredible resilience and coping mechanisms in response to daily experiences with stigma and discrimination. In this webinar, Dr. Sarah MacCarthy, the first appointed holder of the Magic City LGBTQ Health Studies Endowed Professorship at the UAB School of Public Health, will discuss different terms and concepts related to LGBTQ health, with attention to the ways in which the rapidly changing landscape impacts research and practice. She will also help detail the growing size of LGBTQ communities across the country. Dr. MacCarthy will describe LGBTQ health inequities nationally and highlight the ways in which unique barriers and facilitators impact the Southeast.  Dr. MacCarthy will also identify resources that health departments can use to find evidence-based practices to serve this population.

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

    • Define key terms that relate to LGBTQ communities
    • Describe the health inequities experienced across and within LGBTQ communities
    • Describe some of the root causes of health inequities impacting the LGBTQ community
    • Identify resources for evidence-based practices to better serve the public health needs of LGBTQ people

CFDE University Course: Pandemic Reflections

Category : News/Events

Call for student participation: undergraduates, graduates, professional students.
 

CFDE University Course- Fall 2022 

Pandemic ReflectionsTuesday 1-4pm 

Course Convener: Dr. Jodie Guest 

Course Description: 

Often discussions of pandemics focus on infectious diseases, public health outreach and communication, and perhaps even vaccine development and roll out. But pandemics are also like mirrors. They offer a reflection of both who we are and who we can be as a global community. What can they teach us about ourselves, our society, and even our world?  

This course will focus on the HIV/AIDS and Covid-19 pandemics as two (ongoing) events that have taught us about science and disease. But they have also brought a sharper focus on issues surrounding stigma, religion, communication, inequity, and politics. Drawing on these two pandemics, we will begin to ponder how they help explore our current context more deeply and shape our responses to future pandemics.   What were our lessons learned? How might we carry them forward? 

Space is limited in this course, not all that apply are guaranteed a place in the course.
