Race and Health

Monday, July 30, 2018

What is the impact of race on health in America? How does it affect the illnesses you might develop and the care you receive? We will talk with Dr. L.D. Britt, a surgeon at EVMS who has received a $2.5 million grant to study disparities in surgery patients across the country. We will also explore this issue with Charlie Hill, who has been studying the data for years, and The Atlantic reporter Olga Khazan, who wrote the article "Being Black in America Can Be Hazardous to Your Health." Please call us during this show at 440-2665 or (800) 940-2240.

Today's Guests:

Dr. L.D. Britt - Eastern Virginia Medical School
Charlie Hill - Founding member, Hampton Roads Prostate Health Forum 
Olga Khazan - Staff writer, The Atlantic
