health disparities

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Dr. Thaddeus Bell founder of "Closing The Gap in Healthcare" about the health disparities that put our Community at greater risk for COVID-19. 

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday mornings at 8:00) I reached out to Morehouse School of Medicine to talk about public health and the role of public health in a pandemic.  I spoke with Dr. Stephanie Miles Richardson. 

We started our conversation to gain an understanding of what public health does and whether or not it differs from personal health.  Dr. Richardson explains that public health when it works well is behind the scences and uses surveillance to look for and document trends that occur in communities. 

Programming on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by Closing The Gap In Health Care, which features informative, useful health vignettes from Dr. Thaddeus John Bell, which are heard throughout the day. Topics include how we deal with our own healthcare as well as important information about diabetes, cancer, blood pressure and other issues.

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Dr. James Lillard, Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Microbiology, Biochemistry and Immunology at the Morehouse School of Medicine.  The Morehouse School of Medicine is the only HBCU participating in the American Association of Cancer Research 2020 By 2020 Program To Cure Cancer.  

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Dr. Thaddeus Bell about his organization Closing the Gap in Healthcare.  Throughout the Spring, you have heard Dr. Bell's health vignettes on WCLK throughout the day.
