Racism is bad for your health

Our health is a reflection of the world around us, and racism runs deep in the body’s response to that world. Dr. Rupa Marya is an associate professor of medicine at UC-San Francisco and faculty director of the Do No Harm Coalition. She joins host Krys Boyd to explain her theories of how climate change and inequality correlate to surges in inflammatory disease, and how they might be healed with a new approach to medicine. Her book, co-authored with UT Austin research scientist Raj Patel, is called “Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice.”
