Nancy Sohler talks research-based activism in healthcare

City College medical professor Nancy Sohler will discuss research-based health activism in her Presidential Conversations talk at CCNY on October 15.
One of Dr. Nancy Sohler’s research interests in the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education at The City College of New York is examining barriers to accessing appropriate health care for underserved populations. She talks about her work in her Presidential Conversations lecture, “Empowering Future Healthcare Providers in Haiti: Medicine, Education, and Research,” Thursday, Oct. 15. The talk, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture’s Sciame Auditorium, is free and open to the public.
An Associate Medical Professor, Sohler spent the last academic year in Haiti teaching and pursuing her research.  
“It’s really about research-based health activism which is what we’re doing at Sophie Davis, although we don’t call it that,” said Sohler.
Her Caribbean mission included helping Haitians develop home-based research and teaching faculty there to incorporate curriculum in the health sciences.
Inaugurated in 2014, “Presidential Conversations: Activism, Scholarship, and Engagement” is a forum that features City College faculty sharing their research and creative scholarship with CCNY President Lisa S. Coico.
