Join the Social Justice Ministry in a two-part series on Health Disparities in our country. This two-part lecture introduces the biological bridge that links social differences to health disparities and explores how those social differences result from a long history of policy choices that deliberately left racial and ethnic minorities at a disadvantage. The first lecture explores how stresses associated with social inequality throw our bodies into fight- or-flight response that over time causes diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and stroke. The second lecture explores the lives and family histories of two children who inherit the social inequalities that produce different health outcomes.
Then join us for Zoom discussions on April 11 and 18 at 9:15 a.m. Sign up here.
