“In the program we explored different ways that institutions, employers, health insurance, and health care systems breed health inequities, and how to shift conversations in health care toward addressing these issues. I brought that knowledge to my organization’s equity and social justice committee, which works on promoting equity for both public health employees and the residents in our programs.”
