Across our organization, our Children’s Hospital Colorado team members have engaged in dialogue about the institutional origins of systemic racism, the targeted injustices that continue in Black communities, and the ways our social structures produce disparities in education, housing, economics, and health. Today we want to bring this conversation to the podcast and talk about the opportunity our pediatric provider community has in turning the passion of these conversations into progress by providing positive impact to equity in pediatric medicine. In this moment, it is necessary for us all to demonstrate clarity, courage and fortitude to address these long-standing injustices.
Today our guest is Brandi Freeman, MD. Dr. Freeman is a pediatrician at the Children’s Colorado Child Health Clinic and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. She is an advocate for Diversity and Inclusion in the Health Professions workforce.
