The University of Michigan Office of the Vice President for Communications has highlighted HSHE director Dr. Roshanak Mehdipanah's latest publication, "Historic Redlining Practices and Contemporary Determinants of Health in the Detroit Metropolitan Area," in the American Journal of Public Health.

Their announcement features a Q&A with Mehdipanah and co-author Amy Schulz, University Diversity and Social Transformation professor in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education at the University of Michigan.
