Breathing Like a Girl – Public Lecture with Dr Coreen McGuire

Contact: Nancy West (Email)

The frequent conflict between objective and subjective measures of respiratory health has been a recurring theme for the Life of Breath Project. This lecture will highlight the interactions between race, class, and gender in spirometry, as well as stressing the element of blurriness between biological and environmental causation of disability. My talk will also explore the consequences of gender in respiratory illness, through analysis of local historical cases.
