The panel discussion will begin with a dramatic performance that skillfully frames the phenomenon of bullying as it exists across the lifespan. With a particular focus on new and emerging LGBTI research, as well as various local, state, and federal public policy actions, panelists will demonstrate 1) how bullying affects the physiological and psychological health of LGBTI youth; 2) how positive school and living environments contribute to the development of resiliency in LGBTI men, women, and youth; and 3) how the intersection of race, poverty, ability, and LGBTI status exacerbates the vulnerability of double and triple minorities.
The panelists will include Dr. Arnold Grossman, Professor of Applied Psychology at New York University; Dr. Mark Hatzenbuehler, Assistant Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at the Mailman school of Public Health at Columbia University; Darnell Moore, Writer and Activist; Jessica Hawkins, Coordinator, CIVIL, NIH and Erin Reiney, Director of the Injury and Violence Prevention Programs at HRSA. Dr. Lawrence Tabak, Deputy Director, NIH will provide welcoming remarks and Debra Chew, Director, OEODM will provide opening and closing remarks.
