This is episode 38, “Health Inequality and Physical Structure.”
My guest, Gracie Himmelstein, and her sister, Kathryn Himmelstein, MD, cowrote a paper, "Inequality Set in Concrete," which examines how unequal hospital facilities and capital assets contribute to ongoing racial disparities in health.
Gracie is an MD candidate at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and a PhD candidate in Demography and Social Policy at the Office of Population Research at Princeton University. She received her MA in Demography from Princeton in 2019.
Do not miss this episode as Gracie discusses how ongoing differences in physical structures and capital assets contribute to worse health outcomes in minorities.
