health

Join WITF for Toward Racial Justice Thursday, November 19 at 7pm LIVE on WITF’S Youtube Channel for a discussion about the importance of addressing health disparities and the work being done to close the gaps. Health equity involves providing every person, regardless of location, religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity and expression, the same opportunity to live their healthiest life and reach their full potential. But when it comes to health, Black and Latino populations experience significant disparities with chronic conditions, access to care, preventive screenings, and mental health.

Panelists include: Dr. Sharee Livingston, DO — Ob/Gyn Department Chair at UPMC Pinnacle in Lititz, PA and Patients R Waiting board member

Dr. Kevin Ahmaad Jenkins, PhD — Speaker, author, scholar, and lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania
