Abstract

Georgia Southern University faculty member Nandi A. Marshall co-authored "Social Determinants of Health and Black Men: The Culture of Empowerment and the Policy Process" alongside non-faculty member Adewale Troutman in Social Determinants of Health Among African-American Men.

Book Summary: This groundbreaking book applies the concept of social determinants of health to the health of African- American men. While there have been significant efforts in recent years to eliminate health disparities, serious disparities continue to exist especially with regard to African–American men who continue to suffer disproportionately from poor health when compared to other racial, ethnic, and gender groups in the United States. This book covers the most important issues relating to social determinants of health and also offers viable strategies for reducing health disparities.
