Symposium: The Perfect Storm

EMU senior Jada Childs explains how socioeconomic, environmental, and health factors are inextricably linked, and offers potential solutions to the unique challenges African American women face.

In comparison to every other population in the U.S., African American women face disproportionately high rates of diabetes and death attributed to hypertension. McNair Scholar, EMU senior, and Psychology major Jada Childs shares her research on the effects of stress on the mental health of African American women and low-income neighborhoods. She also offers an original solution to the unique wellness challenges that African American women face.
