Black Health Facts: Highlighting the Issues and Influencing Change


Everyday Health’s medical editors Patrice Harris, MD, MA, and Arefa Cassoobhoy, MD, MPH, discuss #BlackHealthFacts’ mission to raise awareness of inequities in health and healthcare in the Black community and how knowledge of the issues can empower us to influence change that leads to better resources, and ultimately better healthcare and self-care, for Black Americans. Through their shared experiences treating patients, Drs. Harris and Cassoobhoy examine progress that has been made and look at all the work that still needs to be done — as the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified.
