Distal causes: how social conditions shape health among Indigenous peoples in the United States

Virtual Meeting on Zoom


Indigenous peoples in the United States comprise approximately 2 percent of the U.S. population. Though often treated as one entity for methodological reasons, there is rich heterogeneity in this group, across tribal affiliations, region of residence, but also in lived experiences. This diversity presents unique challenges, but also opportunities for furthering sociological research and theory. My research attempts to understand both population trends and honor the diversity of Indigenous communities in understanding the social conditions that shape health and health status.
