covid-19-racism-and-the-impact-on-black-americansCOVID-19 has not only uncovered significant health inequalities, but it has also shed light on how racism has impacted the health of minority populations even before the pandemic. In this episode of Better Edge Aderonke Pederson, MD, psychiatrist and instructor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern Medicine, discusses how COVID-19 and civil unrest have had a disproportional impact on Black Americans. She shares how mental health can be reformed to better serve patients in underserved communities and provides recommendations for physicians when treating Black patients.

Related: Pederson and her colleague wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post, addressing how Black women are facing a heavy burden because of COVID-19 and racism.
