    Race & Health: Under the skin

    Race & Health: Under the skin

    In this episode, Delan Devakumar and guests shed light on how the social construction of race and its operators take a physiological toll of chronic exposure to racism. They discuss maternal and child health, the concept of race and biology, and how constant microaggressions, systemic inequalities, and overt discrimination can lead to a sustained state of stress that goes far beyond mere emotional distress. There are also  recommendations for applying anti-racism in everyday life, and how we can strive for a future where everyone, regardless of their background, can live a healthy and fulfilling life.
    Guests include Dr. Ndidiamaka Amutah-Onukagha, the Julia A. Okoro Professor of Black Maternal Health in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Arline Geronimus, Professor of Health Behaviour and Health Education at the University of Michigan, and Dr. Jonathan Wells, Professor of Anthropology and Paediatric Nutrition at the Population, Policy & Practice Department at UCL.

    Race & Health: Eugenics in science

    Race & Health: Eugenics in science

    Eugenics is a concept closely tied to what makes us unwell, and its roots in race medicine amplifies the drivers of racial health inequities, ableism, and white supremacy. Though scientifically flawed, eugenic thinking is present throughout modern-day society and politics. We can see eugenic thinking in policies and protocols throughout the pandemic, through mental health, and much more. In the third episode of our collaboration with the Race & Health podcast, we learn about how eugenics was created, how it has been employed, and how today’s public health world is still riddled with this divisive concept.
     
    Guests include Dr Ayah Nuriddin, who is the Cotsen postdoctoral fellow in the Society Fellows, a lecturer, and in the Council of the Humanities in African American Studies at Princeton University, Angela Saini, an award-winning journalist and author of books, including Superior, the Return of Race Science, and Professor Marius Turda, professor of biomedicine and director of the Centre for Medical Humanities at Oxford Brookes University.
