The COVID-19 pandemic and healthcare disparities
Guest: Susan Burroughs, COO of KershawHealth
Join Burroughs, COO of KershawHealth, popular radio host Terry Base, and Garcia Williams, executive director of The Medi, for a #COVID19 conversation about the pandemic's effect on people of color, healthcare disparities, and social determinants of health.
You’ll hear about some of the on-the-ground experiences of KershawHealth during the pandemic. You'll also learn about the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE) and its South Carolina chapter, of which Susan is president, including NAHSE’s position on COVID-19, resources, partnerships, and what it's doing to elevate the quality of healthcare services for minorities and underserved communities, and their plans to advance and develop African American leaders in healthcare.
