Science for Society: How Research Can Foster Social Equity

About this series

To create lasting social change, psychological scientists should look at marginalized communities as more than just subjects of their research, but actual partners in their work.  

That was a primary theme from the Oct. 18 APS Science for Society webinar on helping underrepresented populations through community-oriented research, where four scientists presented their own findings and insights on the best scientific approaches to understanding and reducing health disparities and other inequities. The discussion focused on a collaborative scientific approach known as community-based participatory research (CBPR). 

The full webinar is available to APS members and registered workshop attendees.
