Hiding in Plain Sight: What's Missing in Health Equity | Keri Norris | TEDxEmory
I decided to go with this really powerful YouTube video this week in lieu of a podcast. I wanted to share Kerri Norris’ Tedx talk on a very important issue in American healthcare - health equity.
Kerri argues (and she’s 100% correct) that giving everyone health insurance, for example, isn’t enough to achieve true equality. There is much more that goes into a person’s health - access to nutritious food, life stressors (even those starting in the womb), transportation, quality housing, and much more.
1️⃣ quote
“For many of our customers, virtual care continues to be the best way to meet their needs in a cost-effective manner.”
Shawna Dodds, VP of Product Development at Cigna (article linked above)
