Racism and Health in the South

My colleague Anne Pollock is one of the driving forces behind an event on Wednesday, October 5, at 3pm, in the Clary Theater of the GT Student Success Center. "Racism and Health in the South" brings together Camara Jones, President of the American Public Health Association and Professor at Morehouse School of Medicine, and Jonathan Metzl, Professor Sociology and Psychiatry at Vanderbilt U's Center for Medicine, Health, and Society. Some may remember Dr. Metzl from his appearances on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show on MSNBC, one of them together with Anne and named after her book on Medicating Race.
