Listen: Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellows Discuss Health Equity on ‘The Dose’ Podcast

Over the last two years, four Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellows in Healthcare Equity Leadership have appeared on The Dose, a podcast on healthcare access produced by The Commonwealth Fund.

Fatimah Loren Dreier, the Executive Director of the Health Alliance for Violence Intervention, spoke about how trained violence interruption specialists can help people navigate conflict, and how the national protests around police brutality toward Black Americans has created an opportunity for communities to rethink the role of the police. Listen

Dr. Cecelia Calhoun, a Pediatric Hematologist at Washington University School of Medicine, spoke to Shanoor Seervai, the host of The Dose, about her work treating sickle cell disease, a devastating blood disorder that mostly affects African Americans.  Listen

Crystal Yates, Deputy Commissioner of the Philadelphia fire department, told Seervai about the complexities of overseeing EMS services in Philadelphia, where the fire department responded to 300,000 medical emergencies in 2018.  Listen 

Kennetha Gaines, Director of Nursing for the UCLA-Venice Family Clinic in Los Angeles, talked with Seervai about her work tackling the disparities between outcomes for black and white mothers and their babies, including infant mortality, preterm delivery, and low birth weight. Listen
