Intersectionality Matters: LGBTQ Health Care in a Changing World

Tuesday, April 4 | 6:00 PM
Harvard Hall, Harvard Yard
Cambridge, MA 02138

RSVP Here

Harvard Alumni and Friends of the Harvard community: $5
Students: Free (registration required)

Join Dr. Madina Agénor, Assistant Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, for an evening exploring her research on intersectionality and LGBTQ health care.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals often face challenges and barriers to accessing needed health services and, as a result, can experience worse health outcomes. Access to health care is also impacted by social inequalities related to race/ethnicity, socioeconomic position, and immigrant status, among others. In this lecture Dr. Agénor will provide an overview of intersectionality and discuss how research studies, public health programs, and clinical interventions have incorporated the tenets of intersectionality to promote access to health care and health among diverse groups of LGBTQ individuals.

Dr. Madina Agénor is an Assistant Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. In her scholarship, Dr. Agénor uses both quantitative and qualitative research methods to examine health inequities, especially social inequalities in sexual and reproductive health in relation to sexual orientation, gender identity, and race/ethnicity. Her current research uses national probability sample surveys and in-depth interviews to investigate how sexual orientation and race/ethnicity singly and jointly influence human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination among adolescent and young adult U.S. women. In her past research, Dr. Agénor has examined how sexual orientation and race/ethnicity simultaneously shape Pap test use among U.S. women, including black sexual minority women, and investigated the cervical cancer screening experiences of transmasculine indiviuals. Dr. Agénor completed her undergraduate education at Wellesley College and Brown University, from which she holds an AB in Community Health and Gender Studies. She also holds a Master of Public Health (MPH) in Sociomedical Sciences from the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and a Doctor of Science (ScD) in Social and Behavioral Sciences from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She completed postdoctoral training as a Research Fellow in the Harvard Educational Program in Cancer Prevention and developed and taught undergraduate public health courses as a Lecturer in Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard University.

2017 Apr 05

Let's Talk - Being a Muslim Woman Today

Date: 

Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Location: 

Harvard College Women's Center, Canaday Hall, B Entry, Harvard Yard

In our current climate of both institutionalized and un-institutionalized Islamophobia in America, recognizing intersectional identities is essential if we hope to effectively advocate for justice. Islamophobia is gendered, and effects Muslim women in ways often distinct from the ways it affects Muslim men. Join HCWC for a conversation on issues raised by these intersecting identities. Cosponsored with the Harvard Islamic Society.
