We are excited to present the 2022 CAnD3 Keynote Address with Dr. Robert A. Hummer. This is the first hybrid (in-person and virtual) session since the CAnD3 Training Program's launch in 2020.

This year's Keynote Address theme will be Race/Ethnicity, Racism, and Population Health and Aging. The intersection of these topics is more important now than ever: Just in Canada, for the first time in history, adults 65 years and over outnumber children 14 years and under, prompting the need for social innovation at every level and sector of policy. At the same time, disparities in the access to the benefits of such social innovations, including those in population health, continue to persist across racial and ethnic groups. Drawing on examples from the United States, Dr. Hummer will speak to how research can identify and address racial/ethnic inequities in health indicators—such as life expectancy and allostatic load—in order to improve population health for all.

By attending the Keynote Address, you will have the opportunity to meet and network with the CAnD3 current and past Fellows, partnersteam members, and operations team.

There will also be a poster session hosted by our Fellows and a complimentary lunch for in-person attendees. Please see below for a detailed itinerary of the day. 

We hope that you will join us, whether in-person or virtually, for this exciting celebration of our program's successful delivery. To learn more about the CAnD3 program and our impact, read our recently released Annual Report

Robert A. Hummer is the Howard W. Odum Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Fellow of the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Hummer served as the 2021 President of the Population Association of America (PAA), the 84th president in the history of the organization. Hummer's research program is focused on the accurate description and more complete understanding of population health patterns and trends in the United States. He is currently serving as Director of the long-running National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health), which is funded by the National Institute on Aging and five co-funding institutes/offices (NICHD, NIMHD, NIDA, OBSSR, ODP). Now in its sixth wave, Add Health is one of the most innovative and well-utilized nationally representative cohort studies of Americans ever undertaken. Over his career to date, Professor Hummer has published more than 150 journal articles and book chapters in his areas of interest, with attention to health disparities both during infancy/childhood as well as across the adult life course. He is also the recent co-author of Population Health in America (University of California Press, 2019, with Erin R. Hamilton).
