Uplift Podcast: Closing the Gap. Addressing Health Inequity through Design
SCROLL DOWN TO LISTEN
The gap in health outcomes between underrepresented communities and more affluent populations is widening. Food insecurity, lack of affordable housing, unemployment, educational disparities and myriad other factors are barriers to health equity. As conversations around diversity and inclusion become more prevalent in healthcare, there’s an increasing need to create programs and design healthcare spaces to address social determinants of health.
On this episode, we’ll seek to better understand the causes of health inequity and dive into solutions through the lens of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic. Our guests are Antwanette Lyons, Community Health Advocacy Manager at the clinic, and Foxy Davison, a member of the Odessa Brown community, as well as NBBJ's Christina Yates.
