What allows racial segregation to happen? Why do communities with proximity to whiteness have higher density of health and increased quality of care? And, as physicians serving Black patients, are we doing the work of remaining familiar with the laws and red-lining in government that has created such silos. How do we break down the barriers that have created these silos that we’re trying to redistribute equity across? 

In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine podcast we discuss centering anti-black racism and making sure our interventions are addressing it, particularly in terms of dismantling and making sure our health interventions are equitable and just.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Why it’s important to determine why anti-blackness silos exist and the ways you can break them down in your enterprise
  • The importance of providing healthcare solutions that are responsive and deep enough to result in change for those that have the least proximate to whiteness
  • How to make sure the things that lead people potentially having to live in certain areas versus others is the focus and target of your health interventions 
  • How to determine the potential benefits for black communities in the type of intervention work you are doing

…and much more!
