Healthy Aging Lecture: The Environment and Our Health, New Discoveries – Dr. David Rehkopf

The School of Kinesiology presents a Killam lecture series on Healthy Aging From Cells to Societies. It is our hope that through this series of five lectures, our audiences will emerge with a greater appreciation for the many different ways to think about what promotes or hinders healthy and successful aging. Our goal is to support a Canadian culture that values science and discovery to support decisions – at both individual and policy levels.

David Rehkopf, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Health Research and Policy at Stanford University.

In his lecture, Dr. Rehkopf will describe a new approach to finding social, behavioural and environmental influences on health that increase the reliability of findings and decrease false positive findings.

Dr. Rehkopf is a social epidemiologist who studies how federal, state and local policies exacerbate or diminish social inequalities in health. He received is Masters degree in Public Health in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from University of California, Berkeley, and his PhD from the Harvard School of Public Health in the Department of Health and Social Behavior.
