Thinking Critically about Scientific Innovations + Medical Policy: A lecture, case study, and conversation.

How do advances in science affect health policies and interventions? Do political and social factors either limit or advance the health of certain populations? Medical anthropologist and science and technology scholar Natali Valdez, Ph.D., draws on her research in race, gender, and power in the context of scientific knowledge and her recent book "Weighing the Future: Race, Science and Pregnancy Trials in the Postgenomic Era" for a talk focused on the relationship between emergent science and health policy.

Join us in the Ingle Auditorium for an enlightening lecture by Dr. Valdez, followed by a question and answer session moderated by Kristoffer Whitney, Ph.D., associate professor in the College of Liberal Arts Department of Science, Technology, and Society.

The conversation continues in the Fireside Lounge during a post-lecture reception. Light refreshments will be served.

When: October 5, 2023, 3:30 - 4:45 pm
