How do social factors such as “race” serve as the foundation for the creation and preservation of health disparities? How do those differences become embodied and impact mental and physical health and well-being? In this talk, Dr. Nuru-Jeter examines racial and socio-economic inequalities, and how these social exposures determine life experiences and opportunities differently for different social groups.
Dr. Nuru-Jeter is Associate Professor of Public Health at UC Berkeley, Principal Investigator of the African American Women's Heart and Health Study and Co-Principal Investigator of the Bay Area Heart Health Study.
