Causes of Death: Mechanisms of Racial Disparities in Health
Monday October 23, 2017 (3:30 PM - 5:00 PM)

Persistent racial disparities in health represent a significant social and moral dilemma, as well as a serious public health concern. Racism is a fundamental cause of disease, and is physically embodied through social and psychobiological mechanisms. A social toxin, racism can be experienced environmentally at the area-level, as well as interpersonally through inter-personal experiences of racism, which impact biological processes underlying multiple disease pathways including via accelerated aging at the cellular level.
