EBB 265 - Evidence on Anti-Racism in Health Care and Birth Work
On today’s episode we are celebrating the release of Part 3 of our BRAND NEW Signature Article, "The Evidence on: Anti-Racism in Health Care and Birth Work!"
EBB Research Editor Ihotu Ali, the lead author on this paper, talks with Rebecca Dekker about how Evidence-Based Equity Tools are solutions that can collectively move Black and Brown voices, leaders, innovative programs, accountability conversations, supportive funding, and legislation from the sidelines to the mainstream.
