Aging Fast & Slow: Navigating Structural Racism’s Terrain
Structural racism has attracted increasing interest as an explanation for racial disparities in health. But structural racism has often been measured using single-indicator proxies such as housing discrimination. This approach leaves important aspects of structural racism unaccounted for. We kick off season 3 with social epidemiologist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Dr. Lori Dean. Dean is leading the way in exploring new definitions and methods to measure structural racism. Dean discusses her groundbreaking research delving into the influence of individual- and neighborhood-level social and economic factors on health disparities and outcomes for those managing chronic illnesses.
