Dismantling Structures Through Creativity


How can creativity help dismantle racist structures?


Frank A. Clark, MD, discusses the deleterious effects of health care disparities, especially in historically marginalized populations and how we can address these issues creatively. For him, writing helps dismantle the structures in place. He encourages listeners to be creative in their own ways.
