Health for a Change: Unmasking the Impact of Toxic Stress and Discrimination on Health Outcomes

The phrase, “It runs in the family,” is not uncommon to hear when discussing health issues. While true in some cases, for others there are different factors at play. Getting to the root cause of health problems and how to best treat them requires looking at more than family history and lifestyle behaviors. 

Dealing with things such as discrimination, trauma, poor living conditions, and food insecurity can lead to toxic stress. And the body’s reaction to continued toxic stress can lead to a great number of health issues. Furthermore, some patients get different care based on their race or ethnicity due to unconscious biases.
