Notes: Lisa Berkman, Ph.D., Director of the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, is a social epidemiologist whose work focuses extensively on social influences on health. Her research has been oriented towards understanding social inequalities in health related to socioeconomic status, different racial and ethnic groups, and social networks, support and social isolation. She is currently involved in interventions and policy evaluations to test the degree to which labour policies and practices can improve population health and wellbeing. Among current areas, she has identified work/family dynamics as a major health risk for working women. She has been an innovator in linking social experiences with physical and mental health. She has just written the second edition of “Social Epidemiology” (2014) along with co-editors, Kawachi and Glymour which is the leading textbook in social epidemiology. She is a member of the Institute of Medicine and past president of the Society for Epidemiologic Research.
