Culture, Race and Health

Culture, Race and Health


The Culture, Race and Health Transdisciplinary Core addresses how culture and race/ethnicity impact health and overall well-being, in particular among the citizens of the Crater Health District experiencing disparities. The Crater Health District includes the cities and counties of Petersburg, Hopewell, Emporia, Prince George, Greensville, Surry, and Sussex, Virginia.

Developing interventions to prevent health disparities
Environmental and social factors, along with cultural beliefs and experiences, influence how health and illness are faced and how health services are accessed and received. This core engages in collaborative team science to understand the mechanisms underlying health disparities and also develop culturally informed interventions that are acceptable to community members and likely to reduce disparities.
