À propos de l'événement

The Activating Equity in Health Research (on AEHR) Talks present a podcast-style session where one to two guest experts delve into their perspectives, operationalization, and future steps in advancing equity in health research.

Kicking off Pride Month, for our May 31st session we are excited to host Asya Gunduz and Ashley Lacombe-Duncan from the Trans Women and Gender Diverse Peoplse sub-hub. Co-leads of the Trans Women and HIV/STBBI Research Initiative (TWIRI), Asya and Ashley will share their insights into health equity as it relates to sexual and gender minority populations.

Asya Gunduz (she/her) is a community incubator, trans activist and researcher. Currently working as policy lead on trans and gender diverse HIV prevention at the Ontario HIV Treatment Network, she has had more than 6 years of experience in front-line roles at sexual health clinics, peer-to-peer navigation programs and NGOs. She is one of the initiators of LubunTO, a recently fledging community for LGBTI+ people from Turkey living in Toronto. In addition to her work with TWIRI, she is co-Vice Chair of the Board of Maggie's, a sex worker justice organization in Toronto.

Dr. Ashley Lacombe-Duncan (she/her) is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan School of Social Work and an Adjunct Scientist at Women's College Hospital in Toronto, where she co-leads TWIRI. Ashley's community-based interdisciplinary research agenda advances two overarching areas: (1) sexual and reproductive healthcare access among LGBTQ+ people and women living with HIV, with a substantive focus on trans women and gender diverse persons; and, (2) social ecological, intersectionality, and multi-level stigma theoretical approaches applied to understanding and address LGBTQ+ people living with and/or affected by HIV's health in local and global contexts.
