Housing and Health
My research in housing and health is about social justice and health equity. Residential segregation by race has a long history in the United States. Racial discrimination in housing was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. It predicates racial and economic residential segregation and perpetuates generational poverty undermining upward mobility for Blacks. Racial discrimination in housing continues today. It remains a civil rights, social justice, and ultimately a heath equity issue.
The research and activities presented here provide information about the housing and health relationship examined by our team. We appreciate your interest and look forward to collaboration.
