Left of Black | Dr. Oni Blackstock, M.D. on Her Work with HIV/AIDS in the Black Community
Dr. Oni Blackstock, M.D. has built her career on the care of patients, particularly from marginalized groups disproportionately impacted by society-wide health crises, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic and the HIV/AIDS epidemic that damaged the Black community more than any other. In this special episode of Left of Black, Dr. Blackstock joins Prof. Mark Anthony Neal to discuss her career path that ultimately led to the founding of Health Justice, a consultancy that supports health-related organizations to prioritize anti-racism and equity in the workplace and to reduce health inequities in the communities they serve. Their discussion was a part of a Zoom event hosted by the National Clinicians Scholars Program (NCSP) in November, 2021.
