A research group working on behalf of Northwestern Medicine conducted a recent post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) study on black women living on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois.

The findings of the study were published in the Journal of Racial and Ethnic Disparities, a peer-reviewed, scientific research publication.

This Northwestern Medicine study is titled The Frequency of PTSD and Subthreshold PTSD Among African-American Women With Depressive Symptoms in a Disadvantaged Urban Neighborhood: Pilot Study.
