Kate Coleman-Minahan: “How We Fail Marginalized Young Women”

February 1, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Kate Coleman-Minahan, CU Denver

Kate Coleman-Minahan is a social scientist and family nurse practitioner who joined the CU College of Nursing as an assistant professor in 2017. She received her PhD in Health and Behavioral Sciences from the University of Colorado Denver and completed a postdoctoral research fellowship with the Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) at the University of Texas at Austin.

Marginalized young women experience sexual and reproductive health disparities through the intersection of gender, age, race/ethnicity, immigration status, and socioeconomic status. I will present my current and proposed work addressing how society, public policy, healthcare systems, and research practice fail these young women through, (1) reproducing and ignoring structural vulnerability, (2) restricting access to reproductive health services, and (3) reinforcing stigma around adolescent sex, pregnancy, and abortion.
