Coronavirus: from the urgency of reaction to the importance of long-term action

Prevention Institute Executive Director Rachel Davis joins women leaders in healthcare, health equity, and public health for a broad-ranging conversation about the coronavirus crisis, what it reveals about our society’s inequities, and what we can learn from it to ensure a healthier and more equitable society moving forward. The podcast guests discuss topics ranging from questions about the term “social distancing” to ideas for turning the current media moment of reaction into a national agenda for action. Dr. Karen Remley, the former health commissioner of the Commonwealth of Virginia and former CEO of the American Academy of Pediatrics, hosts the podcast. She and Rachel Davis are joined by Dr. Shari Barkin, the Chief of General Pediatrics at the Monroe Carrel Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN and a well-respected community researcher; and Dr. Jewel Mullen, the associate dean for health equity at the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin and a previous public health commissioner in Connecticut.
