About the Talk

Contemporary forms of racism contribute to persistent racial disparities in health. In this seminar, David H. Chae will describe social and psychobiological pathways of embodiment linking racism and health. He will discuss his research on racism at the area-level and disparities in Black-White mortality; his findings on racial discrimination and cardiovascular disease; and his studies integrating the role of internalized racism as a risk factor for aging at the cellular level.

About the Speaker

David Chae

David H. Chae is Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Maryland, College Park, School of Public Health. He was a W.K. Kellogg Predoctoral Fellow in Health Policy at the Harvard School of Public Health where he obtained his doctoral degree in Social Epidemiology. He was also a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley and San Francisco. David's research focuses on how dimensions of racism generate racial disparities in health. He is currently the principal investigator of a K01 career development award from the National Institute on Aging to study links between racial minority stress and risk factors for accelerated biological aging. He is also the principal investigator of an R01 research grant examining how racism-related factors impact disease progression among African American women with lupus. David also studies how racism at the area level impacts health and mortality. Collectively, his work has provided further evidence for the ill health effects of racism.
