In this episode, we have a Special Guest Host Justin Moench, who will talk with Jonathan Metzl, MD, Ph.D. about his goal to create “A Structurally Competent Health Care System”.
Jonathan is an author, physician, and the Director of the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University. Each stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, from containment to mitigation, to reopening, highlights the extent to which certain populations were rendered vulnerable long before the virus arrived.
As a result, marginalized, communities of low wealth have been at the highest risk, with disproportionate death rates among African American, Latinx, and Native American populations across the US. Only by better strengthening networks and supporting all communities will anyone, and everyone, return to well-being.
