The Embodying Race(ism) lab is driven by the question, “how does social inequality affect human health and how can we intervene?”. Integrating theoretical perspectives from the social sciences with epidemiological methods in public health we examine how social inequality in the US shapes population health, with a particular focus on the health of racialized groups and immigrants. Understanding how race and social inequities have been deeply embedded into our nation’s culture and health can help us better design multilevel policy, community, and individual level strategies to intervene on health inequities. The lab is led by Dr Aresha Martinez-Cardoso, Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at UChicago.
