Hargons to deliver virtual lecture May 16

11 faculty have been chosen to participate in Big Ten leadership programs this year.

The Department of Psychology, Rural Drug Addiction Research Center, and Minority Health Disparities Initiative have joined forces to host a virtual lecture on “#HotGirlScience and Neighborhood Healing: Community-Based Participatory Action Research Approaches to Black Sexual and Mental Health,” presented by Dr. Candice Hargons.


The free event is 1 p.m. May 16 and available via Zoom. Registration is available here.

In this talk, Hargons will describe the #HotGirlScience paradigm - a liberation-oriented Black feminist philosophy of science - informing her recent research and published studies from two community-based participatory action research projects.

Hargons is an award-winning associate professor of counseling psychology at the University of Kentucky, where she studies sexual and mental wellness.
