Dr. Dennis-Tiwary participated in the Youth Suicide Research Consortium‘s first national conference, held virtually on June 11th & June 12th. She was a speaker on a panel discussing how to leverage technology to study suicide-related disparities among diverse youth.
The Youth Suicide Research Consortium is an interdisciplinary network of researchers dedicated to the study of youth suicidal behavior among diverse populations (i.e., diversity based on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, and ability), with an emphasis on understanding and decreasing disparities. Their goal is to leverage their collective expertise to improve research on youth suicidal behavior, suicide prevention, and treatment, increase research on suicide among underrepresented populations of youth, and disseminate what they know.
