On the Question of Race, Racism, and Biological Embedding: A Critical Race Approach to Population Health and Health Inequities

The Center for Health Equity is excited to announce its second seminar of the academic year! In this talk, UC Berkeley professor Dr. Amani Allen will discuss the concept of race and how ontological conceptions of race impact the questions we ask, the nature of our investigations, and our conclusions. She will discuss racism as a determinant of health and the need for conceptual rigor for advancing the study of race, racism, and embodiment in social epidemiology. The talk will demonstrate use of mixed methods research and intersectional framing to examine how racism impacts health, and will discuss implications for how we approach population health.
