The Duke Center for Child and Family Policy presents the Sulzberger Colloquium: Romeo & Juliet in the Digital Age: Using Mobile Devices to Track Teen Romance, featuring Marta Tienda, January 30, 12:00 to 1:30 PM, Sanford Building, Rhodes Conference Room. Lunch will be served. Please register so that we order enough catering for all attendees. Once deemed frivolous, transitory experiences, adolescent romantic relationships are now recognized as key milestones in adolescent development and precursors to healthy adult partnerships. Mobile technologies are appealing for administering surveys to youth because they align with their communication habits and can capture relationship dynamics prospectively. The mDiary Study of Romantic Relationships provides substantive insights about the complexity and fluidity of teen romantic liaisons as well as methodological lessons for survey researchers.

Over the next few days, people across the nation will engage in numerous celebrations to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a visionary leader of the civil rights movement who transformed the social justice landscape through his commitment to service, community and nonviolence. In a 1966 speech that Dr. King gave to the Second National Convention of the Medical Committee for Human Rights in Chicago, he said, “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”  Promoting the awareness of health care disparities, addressing current challenges, exploring solutions, and our role in eliminating them are essential to Duke Health’s mission and align with Dr. King’s vision.

Magdalena Cerdá, DrPH MPH, is the Director of the NYU Center for Opioid Epidemiology and Policy, and Associate Professor in the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone Health. In this talk, Dr. Cerdá will present findings from a study where she and colleagues used agent-based models to simulate the potential impact of expanding firearms denial criteria (an approach focused on high-risk groups) and increasing the price of firearms (an approach aimed at the whole population, regardless of risk) on rates of firearm violence. The talk will include a discussion of the implications of high-risk versus population-based approaches to prevention of leading public health problems such as firearm violence.
