MPRC Seminar: Sick and Tired (Because) of Racism: Socio-Psychobiological Mechanisms of Embodiment

Speaker: David Chae, Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of Maryland About the Talk: Contemporary forms of racism contribute to persistent racial disparities in health. This seminar will describe social and psychobiological pathways of embodiment linking racism and health. David Chae will discuss his research on racism at the area-level and disparities in Black-White mortality; his findings on racial discrimination and cardiovascular disease; and his studies integrating the role of internalized racism as a risk factor for aging at the cellular level. Collectively, this work provides further evidence that social toxins are harmful for health. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 6, 2014
