'What are we going to do about it?': An essay on racism and health inequities

Brooke Cunningham is a general internist, sociologist, and assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Minnesota.

After George Floyd's killing, she wrote and published a Narrative Matters essay in Health Affairs on how the health effects of racism become embodied for her and other Black Americans.

On this episode of A Health Podyssey, Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil interviews Brooke Cunningham about the essay and what she hopes listeners and readers take from her writing. After the interview, Brooke reads her essay in full.
