“It’s impossible to ignore the breadth of racial disparities that the pandemic has uncovered during the past year,” said Catherine Delcin, co-host of the podcast. “The first half of this episode dives into the policies and practices – both intentional and unintentional – that have prevented the most marginalized communities from receiving the proper healthcare they need.”
“The second part of our episode puts a spotlight on the health consequences of racism,” added Deepti Pahwa, Chief Innovation Officer at Contakt World and co-host of the podcast. “America’s history with race makes it difficult for communities of color to trust government officials with it comes to science and public health. We’re grateful to have Dr. Brian Smedley bring forth important insights into why we all need to address these systemic issues to make sure a health crisis like this never happens again.”

“Contakt World: Truth in Health” Podcast
“What if segregation didn’t actually end? And instead, American cities have become drawn along racial lines – exacerbating economic issues AND fueling the COVID pandemic? Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin, and Deepti Pahwa as they speak with Dr. Lawrence T. Brown, founder, and director of the Black Butterfly Project. As a group, they’ll discuss the policies, practices, systems, and budgets discussed in his new book, “The Black Butterfly: The Harmful Politics of Race and Space in America.” We’ll also hear from Dr. Brian Smedley, an advocate of health equity, whose work is creating opportunities for people of color and undoing the health consequences of racism. 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.”
