The annual Eckert Lecture on Health & Inequality features May Sudhinaraset, who will speak on Structural Inequities in Maternal and Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare: US and Global Contexts. This event is part of the Spring 2024 Social Sciences Forum.

May Sudhinaraset, PhD, is an Associate Professor and Vice Chair in Community Health Sciences in the School of Public Health at UCLA. Her research focuses on understanding the structural and social determinants of immigrant and women’s health both globally and in the US. Her work centers around three complementary streams of work: (1) structural and social contexts of vulnerable women; (2) quality of sexual and reproductive health services globally; and (3) social policies and immigration in the US. Her global work includes women’s experiences during childbirth, family planning, and abortion services, development of quality improvement interventions in Kenya and India, and large-scale maternal and child health evaluations in Myanmar. She currently is Principal Investigator of the NIH-funded BRAVE Study (Bridging communities Raising API Voices for health Equity), the first community-engaged study to provide the most comprehensive sexual and reproductive health data among Asian immigrant women across a hierarchy of immigration statuses. In 2019, she was named a Changemaker in Family Planning by the Society of Family Planning.

Admission is free.

Organized by the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Public Health. Cosponsored by the Center for Social Science Scholarship; the Center for Health, Equity, and Aging (CHEA); the Department of Gender, Women’s, + Sexuality Studies; the Women’s Center; and the Global Studies program.
