Health Equity is Earned and Learned!


In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare landscape, “health equity is earned and learned” captures a vital truth. This critical concept underscores the need for a proactive and educated approach to bridge healthcare outcomes and access disparities.

On the Healthcare Rethink podcast, host Brian Urban welcomes Bonzo Reddick, MD, MPH, FAAFP, a prominent Public Health Leader and Author of “Health Equity, A Guide for Clinicians, Medical Educators & Healthcare Organizations,” to discuss the transformative steps necessary to advance health equity. Dr. Reddick shares insights from his extensive experience and recent publications, offering valuable guidance for medical and educational professionals.

Urban and Reddick’s conversation includes the following:

  • The Importance of Education: Understanding and promoting health equity begins with comprehensive education and awareness at all levels of medical and public health training
  • Integration of Public Health Perspectives: Integrating public health perspectives into everyday medical practices can prevent disparities and enhance healthcare outcomes for underserved communities
  • Practical Strategies for Organizations: Actionable strategies for healthcare organizations to implement that foster equity, including policy adjustments and community engagement initiatives

Dr. Reddick, a professor at Mercer University and the Chief Medical Officer at the Georgia Coastal Health District, utilizes his platform to advocate for systemic changes that support health equity. His journey from Savannah to a leading health professional showcases his commitment to enhancing public health across diverse populations.
