Marc A. Garcia

"The Devastating Toll of Structural Racism," written by Assistant Professor of Sociology Marc Garcia and Ph.D. student Claire Pendergrast, was published in Public Health Post. Garcia and Pendergrast provide an overview of how structural racism is a root cause of adverse COVID-19 outcomes among older Black and Latinx adults and call for "bold policy measures and serious commitment from government leaders to reduce social and economic inequality experienced by Black and Latinx populations." 09/20/21
