Today we are talking about something that affects so many women, particularly African American women...the Superwoman schema. Researchers have suggested that health disparities in African American women, including adverse birth outcomes, lupus, and untreated depression, can be explained by stress and coping. The Strong Black Woman/Superwoman role has been highlighted as a phenomenon influencing African American women’s experiences and has been linked with behaviors like binge eating, for example. In this episode of the Food Heaven Podcast, Dr. Loneke Blackman Carr, a researcher at Duke University and a registered dietitian, joins us to unpack the Superwoman schema.
