1:30 pm-2:30 pmMHDI Guest Lecturer Dr. Kirk Dombrowski's presentation Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center
Dr. Kirk Dombrowski, Associate Professor of Anthropology at CUNY - Hidden and hard-to-reach populations represent critical challenges for social scientists interested in issues of social well-being. Recent epidemiology has shown that even small populations can have a disproportionate influence on public health, even while remaining invisible to conventional research techniques. Methamphetamine users in New York City represent such a population, with high levels of risk for injection and sex-related diseases and unknown interaction with surrounding populations. And like many hard to reach populations, the stigma associated with drug use has made the population largely resistant to participation in research, even when that research is aimed at addressing their own health needs. This lecture will discuss the use of social network-based methods to recruit NYC Meth users, and how data related to recruitment can be combined with sociological and ethnographic perspectives to better understand local market dynamics, market topology, and even to produce a rigorous population estimate.
3:30 pm-4:30 pmCBA Spring 2013 Ethics Day Lecture - Mark Whitacre LIED CENTER for PERFORMING ARTS
The Spring 2013 Ethics Day Lecture will be held on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at 3:30 PM at the Lied Center for the Performing Arts. The speaker will be Mark Whitacre, who was responsible for uncovering the ADM price fixing scandal while undercover for the FBI in the early 1990s. In addition, he was found to have embezzled $9.5 million from ADM. Mark provides insight into corporate ethics, greed and the warning signs of a flawed leadership. His story inspired the film "The Informant," starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre.
