Webinar, CA

Thanks very much for your interest. Registration for this event is now closed. Stayed tuned to our newsletter and please join us again for our upcoming events.



This event features a webinar followed by a Q&A with Zoua Vang, Sociology, McGill University


Zoua M. Vang is an Associate Professor of Sociology and William Dawson Scholar at McGill, and Associate Investigator of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC). Reflecting her interdisciplinary scholarship, Dr. Vang is also an Associate Member of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Division of Social & Transcultural Psychiatry, and the Institute for Health & Social Policy at McGill University. She is the founding Director of the Indigenous Maternal Infant Health & Wellbeing (IMIHW) Lab where she has been working in partnership with Indigenous communities in Quebec on projects related to perinatal health, cultural safety, and racism/discrimination as social determinants of women’s health and wellness. Her research in the area of immigrant and refugee perinatal health explores the impact of gender inequality, race/ethnicity, and pre-migration factors (e.g., exposure to trauma) on post-migration maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. Dr. Vang’s other research interests include the international migration, race/ethnic relations, the healthy immigrant effect, and racism/discrimination as social determinants of health. Trained as a mixed-method researcher, Dr. Vang uses both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and participatory research approaches when appropriate, in her studies.  


This webinar is part of our monthly LUNCH&LEARN series on population aging topics across all four CAnD3 axes. Each monthly webinar will take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 12-1 pm.
