2.11 The DEI Boom 2-years Later with Dr. Courtney McCluney
Across the country, workers have become increasingly disengaged and dissatisfied with their work, searching for other job opportunities or a break from work altogether in what economists are calling “The Great Resignation.” At the same time, workplaces have attempted to enhance worker wellbeing during the pandemic and expand DEI efforts. In today’s episode we’re joined by work and diversity scholar Courtney McCluney, an assistant professor of Organizational Behavior in the ILR School at Cornell University, to chat about her trajectory of research on work, where employers are succeeding and failing their workers, and how researchers can effectively share their research insights in the private space.

2.7 Guaranteed Income Policies and Health
We all know the importance of socioeconomic resources in relation to health. There are countless studies conducted over decades that continue to demonstrate socioeconomic resources such as income affect a wide range of outcomes. Despite the extensive documentation of the importance of socioeconomic resources, especially income, as they relate to health and health inequities, the field of population health spends much less time considering how to get money into the hands of people who need it. One solution is the implementation of guaranteed income programs. In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Lorraine Dean, Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Health Management and Policy at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss guaranteed income initiatives and more.

2.6 The Many Effects of Sleep on Health and Health Equity
Sleep is often referred to as the third life, as we literally spend about a third of our lives sleep. And while we may not be conscious, there is a massive amount of physiological activity occurring during sleep. Therefore, the effects of sleep, both quantity and quality, on overall health and well-being are tremendous. Additionally, researchers have linked aspects of sleep to racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health inequities. In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Dayna Johnson, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Emory University. Dr. Johnson’s investigates the root causes of sleep health disparities and their impact on cardiovascular disease. Join us as we discuss the many effects of sleep on health and health equity.

1.20. SES Policies and Health
One of the key determinants of health considered to drive health inequities is socioeconomic status. Many scholars, practitioners and policy makers believe that increases in socioeconomic status will eliminate health gaps, especially racial/ethnic inequities. However, the story is a lot more complicated than that. In this episode, we unpack some important nuances about the relationship between socioeconomic status and health with two leading population health researchers, Cindy Colen and Katrina Walsemann.

1.18. Legacies of Racism on Our Contemporary Political Moment
We are just in the first few months of 2021 but there is already quite a bit to digest. On the heels of a year of racial reckoning with the punctuation of the January 6 insurrection, deep societal fractures have been revealed. While surprising to many Americans, for many people, especially the outstanding scholars who contributed to this episode, these recent events are products as a continual manifestation of the legacy of racism that undergirds the United States. If racial equity in health, socioeconomics and other outcomes are a goal of population health, it is clear that we must disrupt historical legacies of racism that have continued to affect contemporary issues. We were pleased to be joined by Professors David Cunningham and Geoff Ward, both from Washington University in St. Louis. Professor David Cunningham is the Chair of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. His research focuses on racial contention and its legacies. Dr. Geoff Ward is Professor of African and African-American Studies and a faculty affiliate in the Department of Sociology and American Culture Studies Program at Washington University in St. Louis. His scholarship examines the racial politics of social control and the pursuit of racial justice, historically and today. Listeners can find Professor Cunningham’s latest book, Klansville, USA: The Rise and Fall of the Civil Rights-Era Ku Klux Klan here. Professors Ward and Cunningham are editing a forthcoming special issue for The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science “Legacies of Racial Violence: Clarifying and Addressing the Presence of the Past” with an anticipated publishing in May 2021.

1.17. Grads of Color and the COVID Crisis
By the time of this recording, the COVID-19 pandemic has been raging on for just over a year. Although the arrival of effective vaccinations signals that we are headed towards the end of this unprecedented moment, we are likely only beginning to grapple with the ways in which the virus has fundamentally altered our society. One place where fallout from COVID-19 is already being actualized is academia. From stories on the ground, this pandemic has created a set of previously unimaginable challenges for scholars across the board---but particularly for assistant professors, post-docs, and graduate students of color. In this episode of Sick Individuals/Sick Populations, we welcome Sandte Stanley, Dr. Zelma Oyarvide Tuthill, and Kevin Martinez-Folgar to share their experiences in navigating the pandemic as early career scholars. We chat about how COVID has impacted our guests' professional goals; discuss what type of support we would like to see our academic institutions develop in to help scholars navigate the uncertainty of a post-COVID world; and chat about how the "dual pandemics" of racial violence and COVID-19 have coalesced to impact our guests' work and personal well-being. This episode is sponsored by the Student Committee of IAPHS.

1.16. The Ongoing Battle for Democracy
Whether covering your face during a pandemic or developing policies that create equitable access to health promoting resources and healthcare, politics are involved. As we consider population level policies and practices capable improving the health and well-being of people around the globe, one of the biggest barriers is not funding. It’s political will. Unfortunately, it seems that our current political climate is toxic. We were fortunate to talk to Dr. Nadia Brown, Associate Professor of Political Science and African American Studies at Purdue University, to help us understand our nation’s current political moment. Dr. Brown’s current book, Sister Style, published by Oxford University Press, was just recently released. Listeners may enter (ASFLYQ6) for a 30% discount on the book.

1.15. Vaccine Uptake and Equity
At this stage of the pandemic, the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine is absolutely critical if we seek to return to any semblance of normalcy in the foreseeable future. Despite the development of multiple, highly effective vaccines, we have all been frustrated with the slow rollout as well as the inequitable dissemination of the vaccine to date. For this episode, we were very fortunate to be joined by Dr. Mati Htlatswayo Davis, an infectious disease specialist at Washington University and the Veterans Administration Healthcare System in St. Louis. Htlatswayo Davis has regularly interacts with patients and discusses the vaccine and considers the broad population health implications of the current pandemic and how we can get more people vaccinated.
