Cancer Health Equity NOW Podcast

Health care is not experienced equally across the nation and a number of communities shoulder an unequal and unjust burden of cancer. The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement, part of the Fred Hutch / University of Washington Cancer Consortium, hosts a monthly podcast that aims to share information, strategies and resources to expand collective knowledge on the health disparities affecting different communities. 

What does Anti-Racism mean in research & health equity? And what does it look like?

Feb. 1, 2021 - What should “Anti-Racism” look like through a health equity and research lens? And what role can diversity, equity and inclusion play? In Episode 5, we reflect on the lessons learned from the year 2020 when it comes to health equity and systemic racism. Danté Morehead sits down with Dr. Michelle Andrasik, Dr. Wendy Barrington, and Dr. Paul Buckley to reflect on how these issues affect African American/African descent populations and the roles that diversity, equity, and inclusion can play in moving us forward in research and health equity.
