Event description

Description

Dr. Reginald Tucker-Seeley, MA, ScM, ScD, is an Assistant Professor of Gerontology in the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California (USC) and is currently a Health Policy Fellow at the National Academy of Medicine.

He will be visiting CUNY School of Public Health and the Center for Systems and Community Design to hold a school wide presentation in collaboration with the Centers Systems Changer Series titled: “Conceptualizing and Measuring Financial Well-Being in Population Health Research"

Dr. Reginald D. Tucker-Seeley’s research interests include:

  • Social determinants of health across the life course, such as the association between the neighborhood environment and health behavior.

  • Individual-level socioeconomic determinants of multimorbidity, mortality, self-rated physical, mental, and oral health, and adult height.

  • Identifying how the neighborhood environment is defined and measured and creating measures of neighborhood economic well-being.

Dr. Tucker-Seeley has a longstanding interest in the impact of health and social policy on racial/ethnic minorities and across socioeconomic groups. He has experience working on local and state level health disparities policy, and in the measuring and reporting of health disparities at the state level.

In his laboratory, through National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding, he and his colleagues’ projects combine social epidemiology, health services and community-based research to develop measures of financial well-being for population health research and cancer research in particular across two specific points in the cancer continuum: prevention and following diagnosis.


While visiting the CUNY School of Public Health, Dr. Tucker-Seeley will be holding individual meetings, faculty workshops and a joint school wide presentation in collaboration with the Center for Systems and Community Design. He will present on the development of a conceptual model of financial well-being (FWB) and creating a survey of financial well-being in the Money-Health Connection Study. The school wide presentation will be on Wednesday October from 4:00PM – 5:30PM in room 717.
