In this episode, Drs. Lance Gravlee and Connie Mulligan join Chris and Cara to discuss the research that led to their article, “Shortened telomere length is associated with unfair treatment attributed to race in African Americans living in Tallahassee, Florida”.
The article was selected as the special feature in Volume 32 Issue 3 of the American Journal of Human Biology. Drs. Gravlee and Mulligan discuss their paths to anthropology, collaboration, and ongoing work with the Health Equity Alliance Tallahassee (HEAT) steering committee.
