Episode 4: Is There Racism in the U.S. Health Care System? An Interview with Dr. Haley Thompson

Is there racism in the U.S. health care system? Are there enough faculty members of color in U.S. medical schools? What about medical school admissions? Do they reflect the proportion of black and brown young adults in the U.S. population? Listen to Dr. Haley Thompson and host, Tim Jordan, describe some of the upstream reasons why we have a racism problem in U.S. health care.
