Afshin Vafaei presented findings of our systematic review of methods used to study intersections of sex and social circumstances on older adults’ health at the Society for Epidemiologic Research on December 17, 2020. The presentation was delivered live online (due to COVID restrictions) as part of a symposium titled Social Epidemiology and Gender Inequity. The talk was followed by a lively discussion focusing on why gender in general, and intersectionality among gender and other social factors, despite their obvious importance in health, are understudied in epidemiological research.
