How is Experience turned into Expertise?

(lecture and discussion)

This session will focus on experiences of discrimination. In her lecture, Shadia will discuss research findings on experiences of discrimination and the association between discrimination and wellbeing. The latter part of the session will discuss how narratives from lived experience can be used to illustrate evidence from research.

Shadia Rask, Ph.D. and occupational therapist, is a Project Manager at the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and a member of the Expert Group of Cultural Diversity MONET at THL, Finland. Her main research interests are related to diversity and health in the population.
