Statistics cannot capture an individual’s complex, lived experiences of disease, injury, resilience, and well-being. Through a day of instruction and interaction, this symposium will expose participants to diverse narratives of wellness and examine how such deeper perspectives can enrich research and practice at the intersection of Sex, Gender, and Health.
A day of presentations, round table discussions and storytelling, the topics include: transgender wellness, disability, wellness, veterans and masculinity, disability and domestic violence, campus prevention of sexual assault, and how to implement projects.
