Seminar Series: Racial Stratification and Stress-Related Morbidity Among Older Americans (Invitation only)

When: March 20, 2019 12:15PM - 1:30PM

Where: Suite 850 1500 K Street Northwest, Washington, DC, USA

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth hosted a seminar with Kyle Moore, Ph.D. Student at the New School and Resident Scholar at Equitable Growth. Moore presented new research investigating whether higher rates of both hypertension and inflammation among Black Americans can be explained through their higher exposure to psychosocial and economic stressors, and their limited access to economic resources. This research brings together research in epidemiology, public health, and racial stratification to understand the psychological and economic drivers of racial health disparities.

This event was an installment of our monthly academic seminar series, which aims to elevate important new research on issues related to whether and how economic inequality impacts economic growth. It was hosted at our offices in Washington, DC. A full recording of the event is available here.
