Abstract / Description

In this episode, we speak to Dr. Harold “Woody” Neighbors, Senior Advisor for public health research and Research Professor with Tulane’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, about his life experiences that led him to study the intersection of socio-political determinants and behavioral response in producing racial disparities in disease. We discuss several aspects of his work, including the concept of goal-striving stress, its effects, and racial differences in mental health as well as his experience with community-based participatory research.
