America is reckoning with its public health on two fronts: COVID-19 and social determinants of health. Dr. Georges Benjamin is the Executive Director of the American Public Health Association and has spent his career working to achieve health equity for Americans. He joined Chip on our inaugural episode of our series Hospitals In Focus: Achieving Health Equity to discuss how COVID-19 has exposed and amplified issues in our health care system. Dr. Benjamin discusses the obstacles that many in communities of color and other vulnerable populations face when it comes to getting treatment - and what health care providers can do to mitigate some of their challenges.
