Clarence C. Gravlee: “Sick of Race: How Racism Harms Health and Misleads Medicine.”
February 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Clarence C. Gravlee, PhD, is an Associate Professor at the University of Florida and the immediate past editor of the flagship journal of Medical Anthropology, Medical Anthropology Quarterly. He is widely known for his research regarding social inequality in health, with a particular focus on the effects of racism. He is recipient of the Rudolph Virchow Award from the Society for Medical Anthropology, and has published one book and over 36 journal articles or book chapters concerning topics such as the role of culture in health research, community engagement and health equity, and research methods in medical anthropology.
His lecture, “Sick of Race: How Racism Harms Health and Misleads Medicine,” addresses the adverse health effects of racism both inside medical systems and in society at large. It will likely be of great interest to students and faculty across multiple disciplines who are concerned with the forms and effects of structural inequality, especially in healthcare settings.
