To Mitigate, Resist or Undo: Addressing Structural Influences on the Health of Urban Populations.

Publication Abstract

Geronimus, Arline T. 2000. "To Mitigate, Resist or Undo: Addressing Structural Influences on the Health of Urban Populations." American Journal of Public Health, 90(6): 867-872.

Understanding of urban health disadvantages and attempts to reverse them will be incomplete if the structural factors that produced modern minority ghettos in central cities are not taken into account.
