The Foundation for a Healthy St. Pete: Speakers Who Inspire
David R. Williams, PhD, MPH is the Florence and Laura Norman Professor of Public Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Professor of African and African American Studies and Sociology at Harvard University. The author of more than 400 scientific papers, his research has enhanced our understanding of the complex ways in which socioeconomic status, stress, racism, health behavior, and religious involvement can affect health.
Dr. Williams has played a national leadership role in raising awareness of health disparities and identifying interventions to address them. This includes his service as the staff director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Commission to Build a Healthier America and as a key scientific advisor to the award-winning PBS film series, Unnatural Causes: Is inequality Making Us Sick?
Through the Speakers Who Inspire series, the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg hosts nationally recognized speakers whose work relates to our mission of health equity through social change. We hope their insights and ideas will inform, inspire, and motivate action toward a healthier and more just South Pinellas County.
This is a free event.
