So'Phelia Morrow

PhD Student. Social Work/Sociology Candidate

I am concerned with exploring and understanding the association between wealth and health among Black women (e.g., the stress from a heavy debt burden leading to negative health outcomes). My research has expanded to include understanding how systems such as racial capitalism influence wealth accumulation and health among Black women. I am also interested in understanding the social conditions and factors that contribute to and exacerbate racial and gender health disparities that affect Black women’s health (e.g., experiences of gendered racism, intracommunity violence). My research is rooted in understanding social conditions as fundamental causes of disease and lies at the intersection of Social Work, Public Health, and Sociology.
