Dr. Debra Penney and Dr. Sanchez-Birkhead developed an educational module on racism, which faculty are beginning to present to students. With permission, I share feedback from one student: This week's module on race, gender, and class has left me in tears and for a lack of a better word, educated. I wanted to thank you for the challenging readings and videos that sparked a complete shifting of thinking in myself, and now my husband, as well. I am inspired to find ways to jump into and commit the rest of my career to overcoming these barriers and promote justice and fairness for all. This is due to your class and the education I have received so far. Thank you so much and I very much look forward to the rest of the semester.
Dr. Lisa Taylor-Swanson led innovative and interdisciplinary work to investigate social media content on Instagram regarding menopause that is in press for publication. Team members applied content analysis to posts and analyzed the information space on menopause in PubMed. Findings showed a lack of congruence between online content and PubMed, suggesting gaps in research regarding topics of interest to those discussing #menopause online.
