"Experiencing Racism, Experiencing Illness: How Racial Bias Is Related to the Health of Asian Americans"

This talk will review some of the ways where Asian Americans encounter racial bias and discuss how these experiences may be related to morbidity. These ideas will be evaluated with empirical findings from the National Latino and Asian American study, a large epidemiological survey of Asian Americans across the United States.

Dr. Gee's research examines how racism and other forms of structural disadvantage contributes to health and health disparities. In addition, his work examines stress, neighborhoods, and environmental justice using a multi-level and life course perspective.
