Panelists Dr. Mayra Bámaca-Colbert, Dr. Glorisa Canino, and Dr. Shawn Jones join FPG’s Carolina Consortium on Human Development for a panel on Discrimination, Context, and Health, as part of our Spring 2021 series on Culture & Developmental Science: Considering Context, Culture, and Intersectional Approaches.

Join the event

Dr. Mayra Bámaca is an associate professor in psychological sciences at the University of California, Merced. Her research is guided by developmental, ecological, and culturally informed frameworks to examine processes and mechanisms by which individual (e.g., age, puberty), cultural (e.g., acculturation), and contextual (parents, peers, neighborhoods, discrimination) factors inform behavioral and adjustment outcomes of ethnic-racial minoritized youth, with an emphasis on Latino/a/xs.

Dr. Glorisa Canino is a professor at the School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and the Director of the Behavioral Sciences Research Institute at the University of Puerto Rico. Her research focuses on understanding and improving the health of Latino populations in the island of Puerto Rico and in the mainland.

Dr. Shawn Jones is an assistant professor in psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University. He investigates the interplay between race-related risk (e.g., racial discrimination, racism-related stress) and protective factors (e.g., racial identity, racial socialization, Africentricity) that influence Black youth psychological well-being.
