We are happy to announce the prestigious Northwestern University researcher, Dr. Lifang Hou, has graciously agreed to speak at our upcoming luncheon! Not only is her body of work impressive, it is an absolute fit for the Society and should be of interest to many of our members, including the men (yes, you are encouraged to participate :))! The putative title for Dr. Hou's talk is "Epigenomic study of social-environmental exposure in relation to health outcomes and disparities."
