Sociodemographic patterns of pain in an urban community sample: an examination of intersectional effects of sex, race, age, and poverty status.

Raimi L Quiton, Daniel K Leibel, Eryka L Boyd, Shari R Waldstein, Michele K Evans, Alan B Zonderman,

Pain disparities based on race, sex, age, and socioeconomic status have been well documented. This study aimed to examine interactions among these sociodemographic factors on self-reported bodily pain in an urban community sample to assess whether membership in multiple at-risk groups confers greater risk for pain independent of depressive symptomatology. ...

Danielle L Beatty Moody, Rao P Gullapalli, Christos Davatzikos, Shuyan Sun, Lesile Katzel, Alan Zonderman, Michele Evans, Shari R Waldstein,

AbstractEmerging evidence demonstrates that exposure to race-related adversity, specifically, individual-level discrimination, in middle-age is adversely linked with white matter lesion volume, a prospective marker of future cerebrovascular disease as indicated on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). It remains unclear whether exposure to indices of neighborhood-level structural discrimination (e.g., residential segregation, % ... Read more >>
