On this edition of Another View on Health, we examine the meaning of "health" through the lens of health equity.  From your zip code, to the skin you're in, to your water supply, to food deserts, health equity has wide and crosscutting consequences for African American and Latino communities.  Our guest, Dwayne Proctor, PhD, Senior Advisor to the President, Robert Woods Johnson Foundation, will interpret evidence-based research through compelling storytelling and shares with us why "health" is about far more than disease or "aches and pains".  Join hosts Barbara Hamm Lee and cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby for "another view" of health disparities in our country, Friday, September 23 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

Simone Manuel is the first African American woman to win gold in the 100-meter freestyle competition during the Rio Olympics.  Her win shatters the myth that African Americans cannot swim.  There is a historical reason behind the lack of black swimmers and we'll talk about it on the next Another View.  Our guests include historian Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, psychologist Dr. Angela Jones, and Leslie Paul, creator of RAPS - Really Awesome People Swimming - a program designed to teach African American children how to swim.  Join us for the next Another View on Health featuring cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby as co-host, Friday, August 26 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
