About the Talk: Nancy López is associate professor of sociology at the University of New Mexico. Dr. López co-founded and directs the Institute for the Study of Race and Social Justice, RWJF Center for Health Policy and is the founding coordinator of the New Mexico Statewide Race, Gender, Class Data Policy Consortium. Her current work includes a national representative survey that examines the health outcomes of Latino immigrants through a new measure of racialization she calls “street race-gender.”


About the Series: Building on important work that has documented extensive health disparities, this inter-disciplinary lecture series will explore why race is so consequential for health outcomes. Sessions will focus on a range of topics including how race matters for access to healthcare and healthcare delivery, how structural and interpersonal racism impact mental, emotional, and physical health, and how scholars, practitioners, and community groups can intervene to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.
