NC BERD Consortium: Rethinking Race-Ethnicity

Thu. 16 Mar, 2023 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

NC BERD Consortium: Rethinking Race-Ethnicity: Introducing Novel Survey-Based Measures of Lifetime Experience of Discrimination and Stress

Though race-ethnicity is not a biological variable, race-ethnicity is included in nearly every medical study and often very statistically & meaningfully significant. New measures are critically needed that will allow biomedical researchers to disentangle race-ethnicity from the true individual, interpersonal, and structural causes of health disparities. In this talk, we introduce novel measures using simple survey items to capture self-reported experience of discrimination and stress spanning the life course, agnostic to source. Early results from an employee survey will presented.
