26–Systemic Racism and Its Effect on Health, Wellness, and Justice for Communities of Color

Dr. Rico and I discuss why Black Lives should matter to all of us, the current health pandemic, and how systemic racism is at the heart of injustice across our healthcare, judicial, and political systems. Dr. Rico provides his perspectives on what needs to change in our healthcare systems and how All Lives won’t matter until we start affirming that Black Lives do. He also provides recommendations on how we can begin to heal and work better together moving forward.
