Interdisciplinary Science Planetary Health Talk: Yi-Ching Ong, Associate Research Scholar and Lecturer, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

Biological insights from epigenomics can help us better understand how social factors ‘get under the skin’ to affect disease outcomes and pattern health disparities. This systems science approach linking ecological, biological, and social research can support the design of more effective health interventions for persistent health disparities. Addressing vulnerability in population health allows for effective communication of findings from social epidemiology to health practitioners, policymakers, communities.
