Exploring Health Equity

Exploring Health Equity

By Diana Hla and David Hla
At the Rodham Institute, we work to alleviate health disparities in Washington, DC through a multipronged approach utilizing our position as a part of an academic medical center—George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. This podcast series examines issues of health disparities from several perspectives, bringing in the voices of doctors, academic researchers, and patients themselves. Produced and voiced by Diana Hla, a junior at Johns Hopkins University, and David Hla, a junior at St. Albans School with resources from Johns Hopkins Digital Media Center.
Episode 4: Economic Instability
In this episode, we talk about the harm of economic instability on healthcare. DC’s income inequality—which tops any state—leads to health inequities between the rich and the poor. Lower levels of income stability can lead to stress-related illnesses as well as environmental health issues. Also, it creates barriers on the path to effective healthcare.
