“Racism, Anti-Racism, Health + Virtual Reality”

Dr. Cogburn is interested in the ways we characterize and measure racism and the effects of racism on racial inequities in health. She has focused on cultural racism and effects of media-based racism on acute physiological, psychological, and behavioral stress responses as well as associations between chronic psychosocial stress exposure and Black/White disparities in cardiovascular health and disease. She is also developing a project using data science approaches to explore links between media-based racism and population health. In a recent project, she has started to explore the use of virtual reality as a tool for improving understanding and engagement of structural racism.
