The free seminar will be held in the chapel at Emmanuel Episcopal Center. The address is 604 Saint Paul Ave., with parking available in the lot behind the center.
Dr. Cheryl Golden will give an overview of the results from the PATH study, which investigated asthma triggers in the 38126 Zip Code.
Dr. Golden is the chairperson for the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences and professor of psychology at The LeMoyne-Owen College. Since 2006, her work has focused on health disparity issues, cultivating student interest and leadership in community participatory research.
In addition, Dr. Golden has directed a multidisciplinary intervention designed to foster social and fiscal independence for individuals who were relocated to Shelby County after Hurricane Katrina.
Now, Dr. Golden is the principal investigator for two research efforts: The LeMoyne-Owen/Meharry Wellness Project and The Partnership for Asthma Trigger-Free Homes (PATH). Both projects address the matter of health disparities in the local community and are heavily dependent upon community partnerships and student involvement.
