UGA study examines COVID-19 and increased psychological distress among Black Americans

The additional stresses arise from the prevalent belief among Black Americans worried that they might not recover from how hospitals treat them if they become infected with the coronavirus.

“While the notion has been floated among commentators, this is the first study that uses nationally representative data to assess whether this threat, or feeling, is real among Black adults, and then assess how it how it impacts their health,” said Ryon J. Cobb, assistant professor of sociology in the UGA Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and lead author on the study.

UGA study examines the interplay between the perceptions of coronavirus threat and psychological distress among Black Americans.

01/10/2021

Posted @withregram • @ugasga On this day, 60 years ago, Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Hamilton Holmes became the first Black students to attend the University of Georgia. Mary Frances Early soon followed suit and became the fist Black graduate in the fall of 1961. In the face of bigotry and vitriol, these three served as trailblazers for today's students to follow, and we all owe them a massive debt of gratitude. On this 60th anniversary, we remember and celebrate these brave students who changed our University forever.

As we celebrate their legacy, we remember that there is still much work to be done to ensure that our University remains a home for every Bulldog. The legacy of racism that Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Hamilton Holmes, and Mary Frances Early rebuked through their attendance has not disappeared, and our institution’s work is far from finished. Many of the students who rioted when they were first admitted are still alive today, and their children and grandchildren walk on this campus. It is up to all of us to combat this legacy of racism, and it is up to our University to fully support all of its Black students in ways that make them feel welcome and at home.

It is through the continued efforts of working towards a more equitable campus, community, and country that we can truly honor the great legacy of these three historic Bulldogs.

Posted @withregram • @ugavotes Attention GA Voters:

We are in a runoff! The two GA runoffs in January will determine who will control the Senate.

The two runoffs in GA are for Senator David Perdue’s seat for the normal re-election race and Senator Kelly Loeffler’s seat for the special election race. Both of these races went to a runoff because neither the incumbents or their challengers received at least 50% of the vote.

The Important Dates:

Dec 1: Athens Clarke County Runoff. There are two local runoffs in ACC, but the deadline to register to vote in these runoffs had already passed.

Dec 7: The deadline to register to vote in the GA senate runoffs.

Dec 14: Early Voting for the Runoff begins.

Jan 5: ELECTION DAY

You can request your absentee ballots for these elections NOW.

Happy voting!

ICYMI, sociology major Joshua Patton was featured in UGA Today about making UGA a more welcoming place for students of color. “When people of color come to the university for tours, I want them to see other successful people of color. I want them to think ‘I can see myself doing that. I can see myself in that position. I can see myself getting involved in this organization,’” he said. “As an orientation leader, I tried to reach out to as many Black students as I could at orientation so that it was a welcoming environment.” https://news.uga.edu/joshua-patton-student-profile/
