Drs. Maeve Wallace, Jennifer Glick, and Katherine P. Theall all of MAC, presented their work at the Annual Research Meeting of Academy Health, held here in New Orleans June 25-27, 2017. Dr. Wallace discussed our research, in collaboration with the National Birth Equity Collaborative (NBEC), on the impact of structural racism and infant mortality in the U.S., while Dr. Glick presented her research on healthcare access and health-seeking behavior among gender minorities. Dr. Theall gave the local keynote for the Health Disparities interest group, speaking on social context and the production of health disparities. All of the work speaks to MAC’s commitment to addressing not only the social determinants of health but the social determinants of equity.
