Health Equity Speaker Series – Tierney Lorenz and Sophia Sánchez


3:00 pm–4:00 pm
Kali Patterson, (402) 472-5975,
For our March Health Equity Speaker Series event, we are pleased to host a presentation on “Barriers to Sexual Health Communication in Young People,” by Tierney Lorenz and Sophia Sánchez.

Tierney Lorenz is the MHDI stress and mental health coordinator and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior (CB3) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Lorenz’s research examines the interaction between women’s mental, physical, and sexual health. The Women, Immunity, and Sexual Health (WISH) Lab investigates the ways that sexual behavior impact women’s immune and endocrine function, as well as ways to help women with mental and/or physical health conditions have happy, healthy sexual lives.

Sophia Sánchez is a senior psychology student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and an undergraduate research assistant in the WISH Lab housed within CB3.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. We will be live streaming and recording the talk. You can register, and receive the connection information for this event, by using the following Zoom link:
