Lean In Speaker Series
Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children and Youth presents:
"Multiple Pathways Linking Racism to Health Outcomes”
Monday, October 26
Noon – 1 p.m. EST
Join the Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children and Youth for our next Lean In speaker. A psychology expert, Dr. Camara Jules P. Harrell, of Howard University in Washington, DC, will focus on efforts to uncover the pathways that lead from racism to poor health outcomes for African Americans. He will identify some of the empirical and theoretical advances in our understanding of racism and mind-body relationships that inspire and undergird research. He will discuss empirical studies from the survey and experimental traditions that explore these paths. These investigations focus on the impact of environmental events on physiological activity, and with individual differences in responses. Harrell will address the psychophysiological avenues that racism travels on the way to reducing positive health and well-being which are multiple and varied. Specifically multiple pathways of negative influence simultaneously uncovers pathophysiological processes as well as avenues for mitigation and therapeutic intervention. Harrell will conclude with observations on promising health-enhancing enterprises.
