Show Notes

Every day, our experiences are shaped by our race, gender and even our age. But how does our identity shape the health care we receive and provide? Listen as Hanane Abdalla, Arthur Pope, MD, PhD and Sandra Sufian, PhD, MPH share their stories about how their identities impact their lives, their work and their ability to deliver and receive equitable health care. 

 

This season is brought to you in collaboration with ZERO- The End of Prostate Cancer (ZERO). This builds upon the Promoting Health Equity in Cancer Care: A Virtual Workshop hosted by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) which was co-chaired by Gwen Darien of NPAF and Reggie Tucker-Seeley of ZERO.
