ABOUT

“You Can’t Improve What You Don’t Measure.”

A lag in research on structural racism as a root cause of health inequities may be due, in part, to difficulties in measuring or quantifying the degree to which it exists within a community or society.


Valid, replicable and theoretically sound measures of structural racism are urgently needed in order to build evidence of its harms to population health and to identify pathways for intervention to advance racial health equity.


The Objective of the Measuring & Operationalizing Racism to achieve Health Equity (MORhELab) led by Dr. Rachel Hardeman is to: Explore and Develop ways to operationalize and measure structural racism for the purposes of empirical, quantitative investigation.
