Ethnicity & Health

OBJECTIVES: To report the first-hand perspectives of older Black women within healthcare encounters that impact the trajectories of health-seeking behavior; to examine their perceptions, expectations, and beliefs about the role of cultural difference within predominantly White (US) healthcare settings; and to explore how sharing personal experiences (theirs and others') as a fund of knowledge influences ethnic notions.
