June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Presented By: Donald A. Barr, MD, PhD
This presentation will describe the ways that socioeconomic inequality and racial and ethnic inequality interact to affect the health status of individuals as well as population groups in the U.S. It will also describe recent data supporting the concept that race as it exists in the United States is a social construction rather than a biologically distinct category.
- Describe the different ways that differences in socioeconomic status affect health status;
- Compare different ways of defining race and ethnicity, and discuss their implications for assessing health status;
- Differentiate the relative impacts of socioeconomic inequality and racial/ethnic inequality in affecting health status.
