COVID-19 and Black America
Guest: Glenn Ellis, medical ethicist, health columnist, and Harvard fellow
Join medical ethicist Glenn Ellis, popular radio host Terry Base, and Garcia Williams, executive director of The Medi, for a #COVID19 conversation about the impact of COVID-19 based on social determinants of health.
Don’t you already know everything you need to know about coronavirus? What else is there to know that you haven’t already heard? This.
Glenn will share a few “truths” that few know about, and are specific to poor people and African Americans in this country:
CALL YOUR DOCTOR | For millions of black, brown, and poor people in this country, that is not an option. Listen to find out why.
STAY IN PLACE | Home might be one of the least safe places people of color or poor people can be right now. Listen to find out why.
VULNERABLE POPULATIONS | More than half of black Americans are a vulnerable population! Listen to find out why.
