Equity Dr Cheryl Barber, a social epidemiologist and assistant research professor at Drexel University Dorn. Safe School of Public Health and Arlene Jeronimus a professor in the Department of Health Behavior and health education and associate. Director and research professor and the Population Studies Center at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan so without further ado. This episode explores how Racism Fuels Higher Corona virus death rates. I just WanNa make a brief comment to get back to the discussion about the health disparities in the African American community, because it really is very important and the reason I want to bring it up because I couldn't help sitting there. Reflecting about sometimes you're in the middle of a crisis like we are now with the coronavirus, it really does have ultimately shine a very bright light on some of the real weaknesses and foibles and our society. Health disparities. Have always existed for the African American community. But here again with the crisis how it's shining bright light on how it's unacceptable that is. Many of us in the health equity space, we were aware of these racial health disparities that existed prior to that Kobe, nineteen pandemic, and despite significant advances in healthcare, innovation and technology, these realized health disparities have persisted so the communities that we're now seeing most heavily impacted by covid nineteen. Mostly black communities carry the highest chronic disease burden, diabetes, high blood, pressure obesity as We know that the result of structural racism which is a key driving force of the social determinants of health now did that growing and disturbing trend, the disproportionate impact covid nineteen is having on communities of Color New York Detroit to nearby Baltimore where I drove this week to see for Myself Baltimore is a majority black city. It seemed more than seven hundred fifty infections and twenty two deaths so far, and it's about to get worse labeled as an emerging hotspot for this deadly virus. So, we know that these communities have limited access to safe housing to access to healthy food. Access to quality education access to secure job employment, and so all of those factors have really made communities incredibly vulnerable so that when a pandemic like this happens, we essentially have a crisis on a crisis. and that's because across every major cause of death in the United. States black folks have a higher mortality rate, and that's across the board. It's not these aero explanations, or sometimes you know we get into some of the genetic explanations. It really is structural racism, systemic racism that has existed since slavery, and that manifest in so many of our institutions and really give way to these higher rates of morbidity and mortality in African. African American communities. My background is in a racial residential segregation and I think as we're thinking about that legacy. The legacy that dates back to the nineteen thirties of redlining of racial islands of structural violence and disinvestment or decades, really gets a place where the residential environments that black folks and other marginalized racial groups occupy a really separate and unequal and not just separate in terms of the people, but resources investments etc.. One of the ways I. Think, that's playing out right now. With the coronavirus is one is access to healthcare. WHO HAS ACCESS TO QUALITY AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE? In this moment, we know that communities of color typically don't have as good of access healthcare. Dr Anthony Vouching head of the national. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health told a congressional committee yesterday that the testing system in the US is quote. Failing. The system does not. Is Not really geared to what we need right now what you are asking for that is a failing and failing. It is a failing. Let's admit the fact is the way the system was set up. Is that the public health component that DR A. Dr Redfield was talking about was a system where you put it out there in the public and a physician asks for it, and you get the idea of anybody getting it easily the way people in other country doing it. We're not set up for that. Do I think we should be? Yes, but.

Here's kate bosworth kate bosworth. Welcome up to no limit. Thank you so much and so happy to be here with you. I'm so excited to be here with you. We were just having this conversation off the mahat podcast about determination termination and you were born determined from day. What yes i entered the world literally with sort of my fist in front of me they might my parents decided to not know the sex of the child and so when i was coming into the world the doctor said oh it's a boy because it was like so aggressive in a way like it was like i'm i'm here and i am. I love them excited to be here and my and and they said oh it's a boy and then i came out and they wait no.

"And sometimes it doesn't apple for a folding phone. You have to think they've got one in the lab somewhere that they're gone. Pulling on that one the difference that you know, they patent tons of stuff that never comes out. You know, they they patients stuff the fact that there's an entire blog dedicated only to like posting apple pays they post the stuff. Just in case somebody else develops it. They don't wanna lose the royalties. But but they with the galaxy note really could exemple Dylan because I think that was something that really did take off in in in the Asian market. You know, that was a big deal people really like those huge devices, but over here in the US and in Europe, like dude, why would you wanna phone that's twice the size of other phones? And we took a little while to catch up. And also, the hardware better to the big screen phones got slimmer the vessels got slimmer. So they became more hold -able, and usable so everything kind of can congealed I guess until one spot but Nate you're onto something there like with apple their designs. Always very top down. Right. You're gonna like this. You're gonna like MAC pro with no usable ports. You're gonna. Like, a keyboard with no travel deal with it. And I I don't think quality control has been better for them. Honestly, I think they've been faltering to look at those macbook keyboards, but it's a very different philosophy. But like Samsung or Google or something? There's a I I kinda ties into something. I read this week. It was actually a blog post refuse ago, a speech by Claude Shannon that was never published Claude, Shannon, of course, one of the great theorists and computer sciences, if you don't know his name read their Wikipedia article, but he gave the speech in nineteen fifty two at bell labs was not widely published about creative thinking, and he said a small percentage of the population produces the greatest proportion of the important ideas. And he talks a lot about this funny. It's just coincidental. But a lot about this idea of innovation and one of the reasons he says it happens, particularly in the tech sector is because people are dissatisfied. Things could be done better. I think there's a neater way to do things. I think it could be improved a little. There's this continual irritation when things don't look quite right. And I think that the satisfaction. He wrote his present in present days as a key driving force in good. Now, he called scientists. But of course, it was quickly technologists. But I also think that there is a intense pressure from the stock market and investors and the market in general to come up with the next new thing, and and even just pride. What's the next new thing? And unfortunately, we're the Guinea pigs for that. Jeff Bezos has a phrase that he used which really irritates me. But I think gets to the same point that Claude Shannon made which is best talks about divine discontent, and how the customer is never satisfied for very long with anything that that you provide them. So so for Beddoes he interprets that is in need for the company, you know, for any tech company really to continually innovate on continually moving forward. Because last year's totally amazing thing is something that you know, everybody has now. And you're like could be better we wondered with the exploding note was at the note, seven the note eight with the exploding note, if that would be a permanent, you know, Mark on Samsung, and they seem to completely dodged that bullet will the failing folding phone. Be good. The the next black Mark on Samsung will have a lasting impact he polluting credibly forgiving of tech companies. I mean, look at what happened with Facebook..

"Programs can be what happens if participants don't make it into apprenticeship Bob Lerman, the economists from the urban institute has that concern sometimes people can set up a pre apprenticeship program, they can rent some space, hire some teachers recruit some students, but the hard part is getting employers to offer apprenticeships slots, and if there are a lot of slots that are going begging, then that's great. Opportunity for pre apprenticeship program, but very often we have waiting lists to get into apprenticeships. And so lengthening the waiting list may not be all that productive use of funds.

To look back on that. And. For that reason, I'm gonna pay homage to. And thank you to people that had an impact upon me. And when I say they had an impact on the here's what I'm talking about. If I'm anything, I'm a student watch people. Listen to people I pay attention to how they comport themselves. In other words, how they? Deal with themselves professionally. And this is why I think that I've enjoyed the decades that have been on radio, and it's not something that I take lightly. It's not something that I. Would refuse to pay homage to. If that's the right way to say that and and it's a great thing. I mean, this is a beautiful thing. And. I will say that Julie and Mike Jenkins who host along with my wife, Donna. We host a party every year in and we do this to honor the type of people were talking about and sitting with those folks last night and listening to them is what brought this to my mind to the forefront of my mind. I guess. And it's a it's a thing you have to turn your mind upon if you have any humility about you at all. And I hope and pray the Lord that I have that. I will start with someone who's near and dear to my heart is anybody because he's the man he's the standard. He's the dude. That that got me into radio propelled me into radio and brought folks attention to. Whatever you folks want to say about my radio career, and that is van V. Now, you talked about a guy you talking about a legend you talking about a person that had integrity. Van the on radio for me K would leverage right there with him. I've done shows with K would both when he was here and whether is up in Lexington. These guys were consummate radio people. Some folks calm personalities to me they were radio people. And what I mean by that they loved radio they studied radio they they brought. A degree of professionalism. To radio craft, and it is a craft. It's a you have to work to do radio. You know television. You can do fifteen seconds and do a blurb radio and their type of radio. And my type of radio I'm here for you. I'm here for you to criticize me, I'm here for you to agree with what I say, I'm here for you to disagree with what I say. And that's different thing than television. There's no feedback. And that's what I love about radio as most of you know, I've done print. I was with Currier journal, which that time was the statewide daily for seventeen years. Did television. I was syndicated in four different states with the early stages of outdoor TV. But the thing I'm most proud of the thing that I hate my head on is radio. And the reason I do that is because MAC connection with you folks are every week when out in the smartphone. We don't screen you you're on here. Bing, bang bang one two three four my producer over there. Or no Santa grasp Billy Rutledge who is dental has done a great job for me. He'll be quick to tell you. We take them as they come. We don't screen you because you disagree with us. As a matter of fact, if you disagree you're actually someone that I want to talk to. Because I've got in my head. But I want to know what's in your head. I'm not here to pontificate or or be a bully pulpit start what Jim straighter doors is about we connect with the folks in their doors. Now, I want a terribly something. That's interesting. It's very interesting to me. Last time this party you had van Vance. Tony cruz. My man, Tony baby. Tony at our blood brothers. Where your way way back in time. He is transition through radio in ways that are unbelievable. And and he's a good, dude. He's a radio guy. He understands exactly what I'm talking about. K Thomas K is a person that's been in radio and television forever. She's a sweetheart and someone that I have a lot of respect for Dan Robinson, Dan. Has been in radio forever. Rubbing shoulders with these people. It's it's worth more than you can say. Jerry Solomon who was in sales here at W H ASEAN across the boards. Jerry's guy. He's a radio guy radios different. It's just. I don't know how to say this. But it's a heartfelt thing. With me. Tom Omer Moondog is that knowing Tom is building radio on both sides of the street. It is a gaffe is a hunter fisherman compadres if you will someone who hours pay attention to what he thinks and what he hears these are folks that you identify with because they bring something to the street. It's a. Gosh, it's a different thing. I. And then you go through your career with folks that are near and dear to your heart and helped you, and these are names, you folks know, Joe Elliott. I mean, if you've ever heard Joe Elliott, you know, what a professional. He is. I mean, he he's a guy. That's just top the rock for me. Bob, Valvano Valvano. Bob is a former producer mash show. I mean, this is this icon with sports. I mean, what else can you say, he's an icon. Mark Travis Mark was my producer. Mark Travis was a radio guy with W H A S radio the moved to fish and wildlife later who's a guy. That's a consummate professional. He made me better. I'm indebted to him forever. Bob Shearer who's the station manager here. He recognized. I will say recognize me, but he recognized surveying Vance and some other folks that I mention what hunting and fishing means to Kentucky. This was a guy that said straighter, you need to have a show in a reasoning warned me have a show wasn't me. It was the fact that was a lifelong. Advocate for and believer in the sportsman sportswoman of the state, and he said, you know, what you've got a voice we wanted here. What better complement can you have the net, and I have held that to my heart ever since I came on the show here. Cox courage Jerrell sports editor Earl was the guy that put me on the newspaper. When you talk about someone you hold and reverence I've got to talk about or Cox 'cause Earl was MAC Hannah guy is what it is. And what you want it to be in eight winner by else says it is it is what it is. Jim's trader you can speak to that. I want you to work for me for the sportsman for the sports men and women of the state not for me to promote my agenda. That is not what I've been about that. It's not what I'm about. Now is for me to go out talk to sports from talk to sportsmen around the state it all the districts about their thoughts, and their desires, and what is important to them. That's why I sit here today. I mean, it's a real honorarium. Skip essex. Skip was the program director here who helped me move forward. And here's what I mean. By that. You'll get a chuckle out of this. I wanted to be in on during the week. Just I guess like every other radio Nassar does except GM. You're you're missing the boat here. I said what are you being? He said, you gotta be on on the weekends and needs to be at night when they're coming home and driving in their cars, and they're reflecting back on the week. What did I do? I listen to skip skip still radio. I think I'm not sure where he is now. But I tell you one thing I'll never forget him. I'll never forget what he told me. And the reason that I enjoy whatever measure of success. I have today is because of skip Essex. How many he was a radio? Jim host. You folks know who he is Jim host was host communications UK basketball football cetera. Jim was a guy I was on the air with his folks in Jim host was a genius. I mean, he was the reason I was on there with cable lead for for example. Just a super guy will you make king. These are currently I studied under William H king, and he had the sport boat. Mckay, she show here Louisville. And he was the reason I got into the gym straighter and fishing expo why? 'cause I learn from the best. Matt television show. It came about really in large part because we makes king. But you know, it was one of the key driving forces behind that. The golden boy. Y'all know who I'm talking about here. The golden boy the guy Paul Harney. Paul Harding was the producer executive producer my radio show. You wanna know why who'd been on the air more in all mediums the ball Horning in our with their with my hat in my hand with Bobby stolen, my buddy, Bob Stalin's. Unfortunately, this past who is my hunting and fishing, buddy. More more fishing hunting. He and Paul and I sat down and literally developed not television show how to do it. What to say how to do it? I mean, folks, this is stuff you if you can't pay Amish to it. Then you're just not paying attention. Let me talk a little bit about fish and wildlife. There's folks there that have been lifelong friends of mine and who stood for everything good about the department. Dr Salako that the name the Salako sitter after there is no finer person anywhere anytime that I've ever met, Don McCormick. Who's the Commissioner of fish wildlife? Who was the visionary who put people out there like John Phillips? John was the deer coordinator. Don, McCormick gave him the resources internally loose with the time and money it takes to stop dear all throughout Kentucky. And we ought to. George right. The Turkey man, George, right? If you don't know or understand who George righty is. Let me tell you who he is. He's the guy. That created our Turkey flocking Kentucky. He went up candy back caddy stock the birds met with people I went with him. A lot of these trips who were patient enough to protect those turkeys to make sure they would propagate. I mean, these are folks that you never never forget Charlie Bowers director of fisheries he was the guy he was a visionary with fish wildlife stock stripers understood what habits would be walleye. This is the guy. In course, Pete Pfeiffer lifelong friend of mine who unfortunately is no longer with us. Pete was the guy the took those programs that Charlie developed and thrust forward into the modern age. I mean, these are the people you think about that you revere. Here. And that you understand or the reason you're on the air today. Herald night, David Hale herald, when he was a barber he cut hair but herald new to hunt turkeys, and I heard about him through the grapevine before he even developed Turkey calls. David Hale was a farmer from Christian county who herald night cut his hair, and they developed juice call. I mean, these are things that. Wouldn't you turn on this microphone? They're always in the back of your mind. That's the best way. I can describe it. The region you're here. They're the people that you need in your memory. There are people you pay Amish you, quite frankly. Go on and on. I'll tell you folks that I wasn't radio with they got into radio later in life. But they were folks that taught me so much about people relationships humility. Chrome Jobe hall. These are two class act gas. I mean, they been to the height of whatever you wanna call it. But if you ever were fortunate enough as I have been to been around him to hunt and fish with them, you learn from them if you had a sense about you because they were about that every day. And gal they love their fans. They love the kids they coached, and they were very very special to be around. So that's a trip down memory lane. But it's one well worth mentioning because you know, what I'm a lucky man to be sitting here. And I appreciate you, folks. I connect with you every week week by week and revere, you I appreciate you. And these are the folks that I learned under connected with my career and a very very grateful. We'll be back after this break is presented by someone that after a lot of good, man. He's Paul Thomas.

In the fact that the first internet age I connect today. Ge- didn't really impact traditional businesses that much in the way, they went to market it. Basically, they added some logistics things. They added that they had people using inflammation, etc. But it didn't revolutionize stuff like the second. Connect today JR. Now, it's very interesting in the second. Connect today JR. Where you still have such Celebi Cobb has they haven't gone away. But now you've got mobile social, but the key driving forces all of those things are now available with you everywhere on this device, which is a phone and the thing with the phone was lost. You know, the thing you don't do on a phone as you actually talk on it almost nothing. Right. You you do all the other things is really very interesting mobile computing thing with photography intuited in a bunch of other stuff that over the last ten years has given books to amazing companies that could not exist today if it wasn't for that mobile social revolution. And at. That's everything from the Airbnb is to the Bluebells. But in many ways, even things like the dollar Dollar Shave Club which had positive word of mouth unsocial used things like YouTube ad faithful to promote themselves with Stella vision. And I think the struggle, and the reason we got into marketing and business transformation is standing as later. We have these companies that grew up native mobile, and social, and those companies have midge, amok it gap, even besides technology platforms. Why legacy company is now struggling so I had this thing about new scale in old scale, which is all scale was is based allot of things like spending our distribution our in resources as gala manufacturing still important, but new scale is based on data networks influence in ideas. At a lot of the modern companies have come built for that. So we are now probably the end of the second. Connect today. Jr. I can talk to you about the third. Connect today JR.

I think of porter Michael Porter's five forces in the doesn't fully account for that. And I think it's interesting that that that I that you talk about in many ways was a revolution in distribution, I in digital content distribution in the foul up in terms of how we actually distribute connect our deliver in the physical world based on the digital physical interactions. And we, you know, looking back on it easy to understand. We are just learning. Right. Because it was a complete break with the the atomic pass that we'd we'd grown up with moving into the digital. And it will we've really seen over the last decade or so is this revolution connectivity. And then change people's expectations as you say about the expectations in power structures in those types of things. So that's that's really that's really fascinating. We come to this point. Talking about this idea that they build on each other. You don't just start a new era in in the past as your relevant the pass very relevant night. I'm thinking back to this quote. And I just looked it up that you gave being interviewed at the conference in New York where we had a chance to meet very briefly in sort of spawned the idea for this interview, you said people now spend eleven hours a day looking at a screen there were few other things there are a few other things to do like shower in sleep keeps us away from screens.
