Diversity4Research: Striving for health

Opening hours / Beginning:

5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

11 July 2022



Under the motto Diversity4Research@LMU, various events highlighting the relevance of gender and diversity aspects in research will bring the LMU community together during the summer semester of 2022.

This one-hour panel discussion will bring together an international team of co-authors with selected LMU researchers to explore how different disciplinary perspectives influence investigations on the path to health and well-being. Specific research projects will be used as examples to highlight challenges and opportunities that arise from disciplinary diversity. In particular, the dialogue will highlight projects that address the experiences of underserved and minority populations in the health care system, and the transformative power that comes from such projects. Prior to the panel discussion, a "digital tapestry" will be created with registered participants, bringing together diverse viewpoints and voices on the pursuit of health and wellness.
