1.jpgMarch 24, 2015 - IAS faculty member Shauna Carlisle published an article co-authored with Nursing and Health Studies faculty member Andrea Stone, “Effects of Perceived Discrimination and Length of Residency on the Health of Foreign-Born Populations,” in the Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities. Carlisle’s study explores the relationship between chronic conditions, perceived discrimination, and length of residency among three racial groups of foreign-born respondents: Afro-Caribbean, Asian, and Latino Americans. They find that years of US residency were associated with health across all chronic conditions and that those in the United States longer were more likely to experience health-related problems.  Perceived discrimination was only moderately and inversely associated with Caribbean foreign-born respondents.
