The meeting agenda is attached to this email and Zoom information is provided below. You are invited to join the meeting and attend a presentation by Dr. Leopoldo J. Cabassa. He will be presenting “Building Bridges Between Implementation Science and Health Equity Research.” This talk will present strategies and ways to infuse equity approaches into implementation science studies to proactively address healthcare inequities in historically marginalized populations.
Leopoldo J. Cabassa, Ph.D., M.S.W. is a Puerto Rican social worker. He is a Professor, Director of the Social Work PhD Program, and Co-Director of the Center for Mental Health Services Research at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. His research centers on examining physical and mental health disparities in historically marginalized racial and ethnic populations with serious mental illness (SMI; e.g., schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disorder). His work blends quantitative and qualitative methods, health disparities research, community engagement, intervention research, and implementation science. His research has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the New York State Office of Mental Health, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, SAMHSA, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Dr. Cabassa is a fellow of the Society for Social Work and Research and the American Academy of Social Work & Social Welfare. He is currently a member of the NIH Center for Scientific Review Advisory Board. His scholarship is making significant contributions in three areas: improving depression literacy and reducing stigma toward mental illness in the Latino community; 2) reducing physical health disparities in racial/ethnic minorities with SMI; and 3) improving the health and well-being of young adults experiencing first-episode psychosis.
