Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Race: And Why That’s Important for Evolutionary Medicine

This conversation was led by Joseph L. Graves Jr., Professor of Biological Sciences at the Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, administered by North Carolina A&T State University and UNC Greensboro. Ongoing confusion concerning the nature and significance of human biological variation exists within the lay public, medical practitioners, and biomedical researchers. This occurs despite the fact that a core principle of evolutionary science is the importance of variation. This talk addressed how evolutionary principles can be better applied to understand health disparities associated with socially defined race.
