Public Health Talk with Dr. Karen Belkic

Claremont Graduate University School of Community and Global Health Student Association invites you to
Public Health Talks: A speaker series of Public Health Professionals.

Our first talk of Spring 2020, we welcome back Dr. Karen Belkic, a clinical scientist with a PhD in neuroscience and physician specialist in internal medicine. She is an adjunct professor at the Claremont Graduate University School of Community & Global Health and the University of Southern California School of Medicine, Institute for Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Research, and is affiliated to the Oncology & Pathology Department, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. She earned her MD degree at the University of Southern California, School of Medicine.

Dr. Belkic will be presenting on:
“Work Stressors & Physician Health: Theory-based Participatory Action Research”

About: Contrary to expectations, physicians are not “super-healthy”. High rates of burnout, suicide as well as complications of hypertension are reported, with an occupational etiology strongly suggested. How to best identify the contributory factors remains a challenge. Generic work stressor models while helpful, have not fully answered this challenge. As explored in this seminar, participatory action research “for physicians by physicians” with the appropriate theoretical underpinnings, holds promise, particularly to help guide intervention strategies.

Please join us on:
