Symposium

Health Disparities among Women – Social Science Perspectives
Friday, August 13, 12:00–1:50PM; San Diego Convention Center, Room 30C

Health care reform is currently a topic of heated debate for which psychologists have a unique opportunity to expand psychology’s role in advancing health and help shape national policy.
