Population Research Seminars

This section highlights available seminars from across population research and demography.

This month's video features Dr. Chantel Martin, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Faculty Fellow at the Carolina Population Center, presenting her research “Embodying Place: Neighborhoods and Health Disparities” as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2020-21 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.

Her talk explores biological embodiment of the social environment, its influence on cardiometabolic health, and potential biological mechanisms that may partially explain associations.
