In this presentation Dr. Nuru-Jeter will examine racial and socio-economic inequalities, and how these social exposures determine life experiences and opportunities differently for different social groups; address how social factors such as “race” serve as the foundation for the creation and preservation of health disparities; how those differences become embodied and impact mental and physical health and well-being.
