New podcast episode

The topic of the 15th episode of The State We're In podcast is "Structural Racism is a Public Health Crisis.” Whether at the hands of police or because of pervasive inequities built into the fabric of our society, Black and Brown people are dying at disproportionately high rates compared to white people.

Systemic and structural racism in housing, health care, employment, and healthy food access is resulting in Latinos and Blacks being three times as likely to be infected with COVID-19 as their white counterparts are and twice as likely to die of the virus as white people.

This episode features three community leaders on why naming structural racism as a public health crisis is crucial and what comes after the acknowledgement. 
Listen to the podcast on the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota Center for Prevention website.
