Unpacking the Impact of Race & Racism on Health

Building on important work that has documented extensive health disparities, the interdisciplinary Embodied Inequalities series presents events that explore why race is so consequential for health outcomes. Sessions 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.
