Speaker Bio: Dr. Christopher Fagundes is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Disparities Research at the University of Texas MD Anderson, is the director of the Biobehavioral Mechanisms Explaining Disparities (B-MED) lab. The B-MED Lab integrates theories and methods from psychology, psychoneuroimmunology, and autonomic psychophysiology to understand how the mind and body interact to affect those confronted with stressful life events, with a special emphasis on cancer. We are interested in why certain populations do not benefit from the same health status as others, and how past and current adversities contribute to one’s health status.
