CPC at the 2019 Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS) Conference


October 15, 2019

CPC affiliates attend the IAPHS conference

The 2019 Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science (IAPHS) Conference was held from Tuesday, October 1, 2019 – Friday, October 4, 2019 in Seattle, WA. All predoctoral trainees and postdoctoral scholars in the Biosocial Training Program attend IAPHS.

This year, Iliya Gutin, a doctoral candidate in sociology and a predoctoral trainee at the Carolina Population Center, received the 2019 Student Award from IAPHS.

Gutin’s current work focuses on the conceptualization, definition, and measurement of health, illness, and disease in medical and social research, and how these decisions influence what it means to be “healthy” in a highly-dynamic and stratified society. Specifically, his dissertation examines clinical, epidemiologic, and subjective ambiguity in our understanding of body weight as a health risk, and how we can better account for this uncertainty in studying population health.

Gutin says he hopes to continue this kind of work throughout his career, collaborating with health researchers across different disciplines and backgrounds to achieve closer and more meaningful linkages between the health concepts, issues, and disparities we are interested in and the measures we have access to our data.

In addition, two of our trainees received poster awards at the conference:

  • Alexis C. Dennis, a predoctoral Trainee at CPC and a doctoral candidate in sociology, received a poster award for her poster, “Racial/Ethnic Differences in the Socioeconomic Correlates of Depression Among U.S. Born Young Adults.” Her research used AddHeath data to assess racial differences in socioeconomic status across the life course.

  • Allison Marie Lacko, a predoctoral Trainee at CPC and a doctoral candidate in Nutrition, received a poster award for her poster, “State-Level Variation and Disparities in the Nutritional Quality of Household Food Purchases in the US, 2007-2014.”

    Listed below are all posters and talks featuring current CPC trainees and faculty fellows at IAPHS 2019. For more information, please visit the conference website.
