Meredith Minkler, a professor of health and social behavior at the University of California at Berkeley, will speak at a free community colloquium from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Sept. 11 at the Wichita State University Hughes Metroplex, 5015 E. 29th Street North.

The colloquium is hosted by WSU, the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita and the Medical Society of Sedgwick County.

Minkler will speak about community-based participatory research in health, which aims to bridge the gap between academic research and the community to implement community health programs, according to Jon Rosell, executive director of the medical society.

Minkler will also spend time with the faculty at WSU, KU and other community health leaders during her visit, Rosell said.
