About the Event:
Join us for a live presentation by Sierra Carter, Ph.D., on Understanding and Addressing Race-Related Stress and Trauma for Black Americans. Dr. Carter will discuss racial health disparities and how psychosocial and contextual stressors can affect both mental and physical health outcomes for underrepresented populations, with an emphasis on African American populations. She will examine how racial discrimination, as an acute and chronic stressor, effects development and exacerbation of chronic illnesses and stress-related disorders across the life course. She will also discuss how using a risk and resilience framework can further our understanding of what may buffer the psychological and physical health impacts of racial discrimination and trauma experiences.
