This past summer I began working on this research project that strives to conduct a scoping review examining how structural racism patterns the distribution of the social determinant of health outcomes; as well as the operationalization and conceptualization of structural racism within the following disciplines: health/healthcare, housing/property, employment/labor and education. Being able to operationalize structural racism from a systems science perspective should enable us to develop interventions more likely to be effective in eliminating racial/ethnic disparities in health outcomes.
