Wasserman Holiday Happy Hour

On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, the annual Alpha Sigma Lambda (ASL) Symposium will present The Politics of Health Inequity: Public Narrative and Social Justice.

Why do those with low income and little political influence have higher mortality rates and lower life expectancy than those with greater wealth and influence? Why do African-Americans have almost three times the infant mortality of whites? Dr. Richard Hofrichter, Senior Director for Health Equity, National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO), helps us reflect on the ways racism and class exploitation are fundamental causes of inequity in the distribution of disease and illness. He will explore how dominant public narratives in both popular culture and public health practices have obscured imba-lances in political power; and he will invite us to reflect on how our belief in those narratives allows some population groups to have worse health and lower life expectancies than others. By shifting our attention from narratives of individual behavior to strategies that enable us to examine the social and political systems that generate health inequities, Hofrichter creates the possibility for discovering how to remedy some of those political and social causes rather than merely treating their effects.

The event will be held from 6:30-8:30pm. For more information and to RSVP, click here.

The NYU School of Professional Studies Dean’s Office, NYU Office of Global Services, and NYU Paul McGhee Division present a reading with:

Richard Blanco and Cecilia Vicuña

  • Date: Wednesday, November 5, 2014
  • Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Location: 7 E. 12th St., Room 321
  • RSVP here.

Poet and multidisciplinary artist Cecilia Vicuña was born and raised in Chile. In her poems, she engages themes of language and memory, with particular attention to decay and exile. As art historian Roberto Tejada observed, “Vicuña’s work, at its very essence, is ‘a way of remembering’—as if exile and recall joined to unravel an ‘autobiography in debris’ as one personal story within a larger narrative.” Read more about Cecilia Vicuña at: poetryfoundation.org/bio/Cecilia-vicuna and ceciliavicuna.org.

Richard Blanco was born in Madrid and immigrated to the United States as an infant with his Cuban-exile family. He was raised in Miami and earned a BS in civil engineering and MFA in creative writing from Florida International University. In 2013, Blanco was chosen to serve as the fifth inaugural poet of the United States. Blanco performed “One Today,” an original poem he wrote for the occasion, becoming the youngest, first Latino, immigrant, and openly gay writer to hold the honor.

Dr. Chris Noutsos, from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, will be giving a guest lecture on the use of the Perl scripting language for the processing of large data sets in Biology.

Dr. Noutsos graduated with a PhD from the renowned Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Germany, where he studied Endosymbiosis and the mechanism by which DNA is transferred from the organelles to the nucleus of the cell.

At Cold Spring Harbor, Dr. Noutsos works in the field of computational biology on the iPlant Collaborative project. His aim is to enable bench biologists to use highly complicated software for the analysis of DNA sequences by populating those software via a rich graphical user interface.
