Improving the Health of Populations through Science and Innovation

Population health science requires scientists from different disciplinary backgrounds to combine their knowledge and expertise to answer questions that individual disciplines alone cannot. The Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS) was founded to bring them all together. Learn More | Donate | Join

Social Determinants of Health

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhuman….”  –Martin Luther King Jr., March 1966 

How long you live and how healthy you are depend in part on your race or ethnicity, your income, and even your ZIP code. In New York City, East Harlem residents live an average of 71 years, while those a few blocks away in the Upper East Side live to almost 90. 

American health disparities reflect both current and historical inequalities. Systemic racism, environmental injustice, and economic disenfranchisement mean that health and longevity aren’t equally obtainable for everyone.

IAPHS believes that with interdisciplinary population health research and evidence-based policy, we can reduce disparities and improve health for everyone.

DAGS
This workshop will introduce participants to directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). We will review the basic principles and show how they can be used to determine appropriate sets of variables for estimating total causal effects of exposure (treatment). Participants will work through concrete examples of increasing complexity. We will also introduce how DAGs can be used in more advanced applications, including natural and controlled direct and indirect effects and study design.

Spatial Techniques for Population Health & Health Equity Research
The proposed workshop will provide an orientation to spatial data and methods, and introductory training in working with spatial data and select existing and emerging spatial methodologies, including geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS) and location aware technologies, neighborhood-centered latent class approaches to spatial analysis, and spatial regression methods. This closely aligns with the 2022 conference theme, “Interdisciplinary Approaches for Advancing Population Health Equity”.

Methods to examine and advance health equity research
The workshop is designed to engage attendees in different methods that can be used in health equity research and practice. The pre-conference training will focus explicitly on research methods that can grapple with understanding how the social and structural determinants shape health and wellbeing
