The Office of Disease Prevention will present a Methods: Mind the Gap webinar with Dr. Valerie Earnshaw on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 11 a.m.

Earnshaw, an assistant professor of human development and family studies at the University of Delaware, will offer a conceptual overview of stigma, identify targets for stigma measurement, recommend methodological approaches for stigma research and review an intervention toolkit to address stigma. She draws on examples from her own and others’ research, with a focus on two highly stigmatized disease contexts—HIV and substance use.
