"The Contakt World podcast started as a concept from our Chief Innovation Officer Deepti Pahwa to provide a way for us to share the real stories people are having within their communities," said Justin Beck CEO of Contakt World and host of the podcast. "Our podcast and resulting relationship with iHeartMedia has been extremely successful, and we look forward to collaborating with them on future projects to continue our efforts in raising awareness to topics that are overlooked."

Contakt World believes that user research-based strategies to shape messages and campaign materials is the most important part of making health communications work.

These discussions will bring together health leaders, communication experts, behavioral scientists and diversity & inclusion experts for interactive sessions that will be available to the public.

"The public health conversation is often steered by what happens at the federal level, and it's important to get insights from people that are on the ground and responsible for real change. I'm thrilled we have had such early success with the podcast, and I'm excited for what's to come as we continue to develop our partnership with iHeartMedia."

"Contakt World: Truth in Health" Podcast

Episode 8: General Disparities? Or Data Genocide?

How do we improve community health, when community health statistics are completely ignored? American Indian and Alaska Natives are experiencing the disproportionate impact of COVID in their populations. Can we draw attention to this? And how can we empower people? Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Abigail Echo-Hawk, Chief Research Officer at Seattle Indian Health Board and the Director of the Urban Indian Health Institute. Together, they'll discuss "the oppression of data" - and solutions that help all people. We'll also talk with Sarah Strong Horse Anderson, who experienced first-hand the effects of COVID on her family and Native community, and the lack of care they received. As always, we'll talk about how to help our local health departments - and encourage innovation and technology integration - all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all.

"This episode dives into the importance of inclusivity and equity when it comes to health statistics and how providing accurate data on all communities is the only way to improve public health, added Beck. "We're honored to have Abigail and Sarah join our podcast to discuss the inequities facing the American Indian and Alaska Native population and bring these problems to the forefront so we can work towards a more equitable system."
