Dr. Henna Budhwani: University of Alabama Analyzes Link between Race and Stress

Dr. Henna Budhwani: University of Alabama Analyzes Link between Race and StressDr. Henna Budhwani, assistant professor in the department of health organization and policy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, was published in The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Health, Illness, Behavior, and Society, which represents the most authoritative resource covering concepts, theories, and substantive topics relating to the study of health in our globalized, twenty-first century world. Dr. Budhwani was invited to contribute on two topics, one of which was on the subject of “Race and Stress.”

In Dr. Budhwani’s work, she states that “Although race emerges from genetics and biology, it is a label. The beliefs and stereotypes associated with different races are socially constructed; therefore, they have implications for the perceptions groups have of one another and for outcomes, such as stress, which may manifest as repercussions from these perceptions.”
