First Look

A place to study race

Briana Woods-Jaeger is one of a growing cadre of Rollins researchers studying the public health effects of racism.

Their work spans health outcomes associated with forms of individual, structural, and systemic racism, along with interventions to begin to dismantle the scaffolding of white supremacy. Woods-Jaeger is pictured here walking by a street art exhibit called “Say Their Names.” Created by artist Austin “Blue” Richardson, the exhibit  features portraits of 10 Black lives that ended at the hands of police.
