Pandemic Stress Affects Black Adults More Than Their White Peers

External News Details

Black adults experience more pronounced mental health challenges than white adults in response to stresses associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study released by researchers from Georgia Tech and North Carolina State University. The study also found that younger white adults were less adversely affected by stress related to COVID-19 than older white adults. Ann Pearman was a senior research scientist in the School of Psychology when the study was conducted, and is the corresponding author. Graduate student MacKenzie Hughes and research assistant Clara Coblenz, both of the Hertzog Adult Cognition Lab, also contributed to the research. (The study was also covered in this roundup of recent Covid-19 stories in MSN news.)
