This series of panels will examine how race and racial health disparities are studied in epidemiology. The first panel will explore the history of census data, how data on race are collected and studied, and the implications of how this data are used in population health science. the second panel will ask if epidemiology has made a difference in race-related health disparities. The third panel will conclude our series with a forward-looking focus, asking what are the big unanswered questions for epidemiology with respect to race and how this can guide the future of the field.
Co-hosted by the Society for Epidemiologic Research and the Boston University School of Public Health.
