Zoom Chat on COVID & Health Disparities in Tennessee
COVID has not treated all Tennesseans equally. And the fight is on to help those who are most in need. In this riveting Zoom chat, three Tennesseans from across the state discuss the ongoing crisis and health disparities within our borders. The three panelists include Dr. J. Lawrence Turner, senior pastor at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis, Dr. James Hildreth, president of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, and Dr. Andrea Willis, senior vice president and chief medical officer of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
Moderated by former NBC weekend anchor John Seigenthaler, the discussion veered into areas unexpected — as all three shared their own personal narratives as African-Americans living in a post-George Floyd world.
