Race, Racism, and Perinatal Health: State of the Science
Jan. 19, 2021 7:30 - 9pm
Join some of the most well-known experts in sociology, public health, and perinatal research to explore this important and timely topic. We will discuss the socially constructed nature of race, including how best to measure and include race and racism in health equity research. Cutting edge measurements of structural racism will be reviewed, as well as the ways in which race and racism interact with the underlying biology of adverse obstetric outcomes. An expert panel discussion at the conclusion of this symposium will provide opportunities for dialogue, cross-disciplinary learning, and audience participation.
