Dr. Mezuk’s Sweden Trip

In early October Dr. Mezuk visited Tilberg University in Tilberg, Netherlands where she gave a talk entitled “Integrating social psychology and biology to examine the sources of social disparities in diabetes risk” at the Center of Research on Psychology in Somatic diseases (CoRPS). While there she met with Dr. Frans Pouwer, an international expert on the role of psychosocial factors in diabetes risk. She also traveled to Malmo, Sweden to meet with Drs. Jan and Kristina Sundquist at the Centre for Primary Care Research at Lund University to continue work on their project on the contribution of neighborhood factors to depression and diabetes risk.
