Stay Outraged

Over the last month, as the United States has entered a seismic reckoning around racism, Esther Choo, M.D., has been reflecting on medicine—and has some blunt words. Racial inequity in health care is nothing new: Black people suffer higher rates of everything from maternal mortality to chronic disease. Now, she says, medical institutions “are scrambling to look like they know what they are doing [on race]…and I don't think they do.” In this passionate episode, she turns a critical lens on both the health-care establishment and herself, makes the case that protecting health for all people “is the defining issue of our age,” and tells listeners how they can help in the months and years ahead.
