The CHIP lecture series continues Thursday Nov. 7th with a talk by Mark Hatzenbuehler, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University about the “Structural Stigma and the Health of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Populations.”
Dr. Hatzenbuehler, completed his doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Yale University and was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholar at Columbia. His research investigates “how structural forms of stigma increase risk for adverse health outcomes among members of socially disadvantaged populations,” with an emphasis on the gay community.
He has received multiple awards from the American Public Health Association and the American Psychological Association for his research, which has been extensively covered in the media, including television and print interviews, and been cited in court cases on sexual orientation-related discrimination.
In addition, Dr. Hatzenbuehler is currently being funded on a K01 award from NIDA to study social determinants of substance use and other health outcomes among sexual minority youth.
