New Directions in Conceptualizing Stigma, Discrimination, and Health
Monday September 18, 2017 (3:30 PM - 5:00 PM)

Interpersonal discrimination contributes to health inequalities for disadvantaged groups across numerous stigmatized identities. In this talk, I will discuss a theoretical framework for understanding the effects of discrimination on health and will present some recent empirical findings in support of our model. I will then discuss aspirations for the field including innovations in study design that incorporate multiple levels of discrimination, consider multiple identities, and measure a wider range of objective physical health outcomes.
