Description

Kaori Fujishiro, PhD, is a social epidemiologist at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).  Her work investigates social patterning of health as a reflection of the dynamic interaction between individuals and their work environment.  In her recent publications, Dr. Fujishiro points out that work, as intersection of race/ethnicity and socioeconomic position, plays an important role in creating and perpetuating health inequalities.  She emphasized the need for disentangling the meaning of work as a determinant of health as she pursues ways to reduce and eliminate health inequalities.
