Influence of Psychosocial, Racism, and Socioeconomic Status on Health 

Event #1 Influence of Psychosocial, Racism, and Socioeconomic Status on Health 

An insightful conversation about the influence of psychosocial stressors—such as racism and neighborhood socioeconomic status—that affect the health outcomes in Black and Brown communities. Led by Dr. Yvette Cozier.

Dr. Yvette Cozier is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology and the Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) at Boston University School of Public Health. She is also a Senior Epidemiologist at the Slone Epidemiology Center at Boston University School of Medicine, where she co-leads the Black Women’s Health Study (BWHS), a follow-up of over 59,000 African American women begun in 1995.

 

As a social epidemiologist, Dr. Cozier’s overall research focus is on the influence of psychosocial and structural factors - including racism and neighborhood socioeconomic status (SES) – on health, including the development of conditions such as type-2 diabetes, lupus, and poor oral health. Additional research interests include the role of attitudes about spirituality and religiosity on health.
