Movement is LifeTM Launches
"The Health Disparities Podcast" Series

Movement is Life TM is delighted to announce the introduction of a new podcast series: “The Health Disparities Podcast”.

Available by subscription from leading podcast providers, “The Health Disparities Podcast” is a series of conversations about health disparities with people and organizations who are working to eliminate them.

The podcast series features conversations with experts drawn from the Movement is LifeTM Caucus Steering Committee, Annual Caucus speakers, and leaders from the many partner organizations who work with and support Movement is Life TM.

Every 2 weeks, Movement is LifeTM asks experts and thought leaders to talk about the health inequalities impacting American communities and discusses programs and policies that aim to move the health equity needle. Health disparities are apparent for millions of Americans across race, ethnicity, gender and geography, leading to measurably different chronic disease prevalence, life expectancy and quality of life. The podcast series aims to illuminate and demystify some of the historical and structural drivers of health disparities, highlighting areas where unconscious bias affects care, and spotlighting leaders and programs working towards change.

For our first podcast we invited the Movement is Life TM chair, Professor Mary O'Connor, MD, to share her perspectives on bundled payments and disparities with health policy expert Bill Finerfrock. Listen and subscribe here: iTunes:
