Biological Toll of Racism on Health

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 12:00 - 13:30

Cheryl Currie Brown Bag Talk

The negative relationship between racism and health is well documented in the literature. The ways in which racism may get under the skin to influence brain, body and behaviour remains less well understood. In this presentation, Dr. Currie will discuss the aetiologic pathways linking racism to biological health within racialized populations.

A social epidemiologist by training, Dr. Currieā€™s research is focused on the ways in which social experiences, both positive and negative, shape health and health-risk behaviour.  Currie is an associate professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Alberta Innovates Translational Chair in Aboriginal Health and Well-Being. She is particularly interested in research that enables action at clinical and community levels.

Dr. Currie is a Prentice Institute Research Affiliate.
