By Karen Guin

The president of a local nonprofit and a faculty researcher will discuss health care disparities and their implications for women's health at a roundtable discussion at the University of Central Florida.

Campus and local community members are invited to attend the discussion at Health and Public Affairs II, Room 247, on UCF's Orlando campus, from 1 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20.

The speakers are Jenna Tosh, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, and Latarsha Chisholm, assistant professor of health services administration at UCF.

Tosh will discuss how health care disparities affect women, policies addressing women's health and the impact of planned parenthood on women's health. Chisholm will speak about health care disparities overall, highlight key factors contributing to disparities and identify other barriers to health care for women.

A time for questions and answers will follow their talks.

Attendance is free. Guests are welcomed to bring and eat their lunch during the discussion.

The College of Health and Public Affairs' Diversity Committee is hosting the roundtable discussion. The committee's mission is to promote awareness of diverse cultures, backgrounds and life experiences among students, faculty, staff and alumni.
