2001 N. Soto Street , Los Angeles, CA 90033


The Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Applied Studies (IDEAS) Initiative and the USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health (IIGH) invite you to a hybrid seminar featuring Dr. Ghina Mumtaz, Assistant Professor at the American University of Beirut in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health and  Dr. Parveen Parmar, Director of Social and Global Emergency Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine.  


The primary focus of Dr. Mumtaz’s research is on characterizing the epidemiology of HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and hepatitis C virus in the Middle East and North Africa, with a special focus on most-at-risk populations and, more recently, refugees and internally displaced populations. Her research work has informed policy and programming decisions at key international organizations. She is currently involved in several research projects on Covid-19 in the region and globally, using mainly mathematical modeling. 


Dr. Parmar’s research has focused on the study of health and human rights violations in refugees and internally displaced populations. Dr. Parmar has supported health care for refugees and other vulnerable persons globally in multiple settings--on issues such as emergency care delivery, maternal and child health, gender-based violence, and primary care provision. Dr. Parmar is the Chief of the Division of Global Emergency Medicine at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, where she is an Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine. 


Please help us spread the word to interested colleagues, staff, and students. Lunch will be provided.
