"Explaining Racial Disparities in Systemic Inflammation"

Dr. Irena Stepanikova, Associate Professor, UAB Department of Sociology
Why are African Americans more likely than whites to suffer from chronic disease? Low-level, chronic inflammation in the body provides some clues. Dr. Stepanikova will explore factors that contribute to chronic inflammation, from modifiable health behaviors to larger-scale social forces that lead to African American disadvantage in health, including inequality and discrimination.
