Project on discrimination, stress and health in American Indians

Our investigator group was recently awarded a center grant from the American Heart Association to study and address health disparities among American Indians.  I am the PI on one of the 4-year projects and wanted to bring this work to your attention in case you know of, (1) recent college grads or research staff who would be interested in working as a professional research assistant (PRA) in the Denver area, and/or (2) know of recent or soon-to-graduate PhDs who would be interested in a bio-phys-health post-doc (starting next year).  I am also very interested in connecting with researchers who are doing similar work!

One of the PRA positions is open now:

An additional PRA position is forthcoming.

The postdoc position will likely be advertised in the spring, but interested individuals should feel free to contact me anytime.


Study Brief

American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have suffered a long history of racial oppression, derogatory stereotypes and cultural ignorance that continue today. In a recent study, 85% of AI/AN reported prior experiences with discrimination, many with repeated incidents across multiple contexts. Frequent discrimination has been proposed to be a unique form of chronic stress, increasing allostatic load. Our goal is to better understand AI/AN experiences of discrimination and how such experiences may contribute to increased risk for cardiovascular disease, through allostatic load.

Welcome to 2015-16 at the Block Museum at Northwestern University

Open now through November 30, 2015, the Block presents Geof Oppenheimer: Big Boss and the Ecstasy of Pressures, which features two newly commissioned works by Oppenheimer in his first solo museum exhibition. Oppenheimer, a Chicago-based artist, probes structures of power and how they are communicated through material and image, pressure and release, upon the individual.  With his large-scale sculpture and multi-channel video installation, he also invokes how our relations to one another are shaped and predetermined by systems of exchange and labor.

We  welcome Psychology colleagues and students to the opening program and reception this Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 2-5pm, beginning at McCormick Auditorium in the Norris University. Oppenheimer will join the Block¹s director, Lisa Corrin, in conversation about his work, with a reception following at the Block.  Please see our website for a full list of programs this fall, featuring sociologist Richard Sennett and artist Joan Jonas.

Please contact us if you would like to arrange a tour.

Along with the information about the fall exhibitions and programs, we would also like to let you know about our upcoming exhibition, A Feast of Astonishments: Charlotte Moorman and the Avant-Garde: 1960s ­ 1980s, running January 15 ­ July 17, 2016.  This is the first major exhibition exploring the life and work of the musician, performance artist and ³Joan of Arc² of the avant-garde, who collaborated with a vast network of artists across creative fields, including Nam June Paik and Yoko Ono.  The Block is proud to originate this exhibition, which will travel to New York and Salzburg.

Thank you.
