Abstract / Description

Black Americans and other people of color tend to live sicker and die younger than white Americans. Why is this happening? The Skin You’re In Podcast investigates this disturbing phenomenon. We talk to leading health experts about the issues and potential solutions, and we hear from individuals about their firsthand experiences of injustice and its effects on their lives and their communities. The series is hosted by Thomas LaVeist, Dean, Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and Partners for Advancing Health Equity, a national health equity learning collaborative led by Tulane. Dr. LaVeist is also Executive Producer and Writer of the groundbreaking docu-series, “The Skin You’re In”. The Skin You’re In Podcast is produced by Partners for Advancing Health Equity, led by Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and is part of the Tulane Institute for Health Equity. Partners for Advancing Health Equity is supported by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
