Podcast 278: Where equity and community health intersect — a conversation with Joseph Betancourt

An internist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Joseph Betancourt also runs their program on equity and community health.

In this, the final entry in our four-interview exploration of race and clinical equity, Betancourt talks about the need for medical institutions to pay attention to what’s happening in their patients’ communities. To that end, MGH has a “bodega makeover” initiative to bring healthy food choices to local stores. (His grandfather’s bodega in Spanish Harlem likely served as an inspiration.)

Running time: 17 minutes
