Kirstie Boyett is a Sociology Graduate Instructor and Peer-Health Advisor at Texas
A&M University who has spent the last 12 years studying social psychology, an
interdisciplinary field of research that emphasizes the interplay among the individual,
interactions and macrostructures. Social psychology informs us on how society affects our everyday actions.
Our conversation centers around COVID-19, and healthy and equity disparities in the prison system, racial injustice, single moms in the time of Corona, and the ways COVID-19 is affecting everyday interactions and mental and emotional well-being.
