The HOUSES Program: Social Determinants of Health and Beyond
Young Juhn, MD, MPH
Pediatric Asthma Epidemiology Research Unit
Mayo Clinic College of Medicine
Dr. Juhn has developed and validated a housing-based socioeconomic measure (HOUSES index) to apply to epidemiologic research concerning health disparities and differences in a variety of health outcomes. This newly developed index has shown to be a useful tool, allowing investigators to work more effectively. It enables researchers to overcome the absence of socioeconomic measures in commonly used data sources (e.g., administrative data), conduct geospatial analysis in health disparities research and apply a life course approach.
All are invited to attend.
This seminar is sponsored by the Division of Health Policy and Management, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota.
