Arline T. Geronimus

Work by Geronimus cited in PBS's '5 important stories'

an In The Media Reference

"5 important stories you may have overlooked" - PBS. 4/17/2018.

Summarizing five important recent news stories, the piece examines the significance behind government data reported by the *NYT* that the black infant mortality rate in America is more than twice that for white infants. Early and more recent work by Arline Geronimus on the biopsychosocial factors that negatively impact the health of black mothers provides evidence of the role played by stress, especially given the "double jeopardy of gender and racial discrimination."
