Racism in Healthcare

The murder of George Floyd by police nearly a year ago has forced America to reexamine issues of race in all sorts of areas. That includes healthcare, especially in the context of the pandemic. Arun Rath speaks with community health expert Dr. Monica Wang, Associate Director of Narrative at the B.U. Center for Antiracist Research, about how Floyd's murder has prompted the field of medicine to take a hard look at itself. Arun also speaks with Boston Medical Center’s Dr. Sabrina Assoumou about the disparities in healthcare access and health outcomes faced by communities of color.
