Session: Understanding the Contribution of Race and Racial Stress to Health Outcomes
4011.0: Tuesday, November 07, 2006: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Understanding the Contribution of Race and Racial Stress to Health Outcomes
The higher disease rates for African Americans compared to whites are pervasive and persistent over time, with the racial gap in mortality widening in recent years for multiple causes of death. Other racial/ethnic minority populations also have elevated disease risk for some health conditions. This session papers will explore complex ways in which race and socioeconomic status (SES) combine to affect health.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Identify ways race and racial stressors affect african American health outcomes. 2. List 3 stressors that contribute health concerns of African Americans.
