Freedom as Prevention: Political Ecology, Self-Determination Theory and the Structural Overexposure to HIV Risk
Join us for an informative and engaging lecture presented by Yale University Professor LaRon E. Nelson. Professor Nelson serves as Associate Dean of Global Affairs and Planetary Health at the Yale School of Nursing, as well as the Director of Justice, Community Capacity & Equity in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS at the Yale School of Public Health. His lecture will explore why the broad availability of HIV prevention medication has not improved the inequitable ratio of new HIV cases in the United States for Black communities. The talk will also look at the behaviors of health care systems and other institutions which reflect larger structural arrangements that overexpose Black communities to risk.
The 2022-23 N. Graham Lecture is being held in-person at University College, as well as streaming live online for home viewers.
