Embodied Inequality Series Event: Street Race-Gender and the Social Determinants of Health in Latinx Communities
Date(s) - 10/13/2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Institute for Research on Race and project partners present an Embodied Inequalities series event, a lecture by University of New Mexico Professor Nancy López focusing on a national representative survey that examines the health outcomes of Latino immigrants through a new measure of racialization she calls “street race-gender.”
Building on important work that has documented extensive health disparities, this inter-disciplinary lecture series explores why race is so consequential for health outcomes. Sessions will focus on a range of topics including how race matters for access to healthcare and healthcare delivery, how structural and interpersonal racism impact mental, emotional, and physical health, and how scholars, practitioners, and community groups can intervene to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.
