Description

This presentation 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 part of the presentation explores how social inequality produces a stress response that produces diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and stroke. The second part explores the lives and family histories of two children who inherit social inequalities that produce different health outcomes. This presentation will focus on the Bayou Parishes region of Louisiana.
