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!

On the next Another View an open and  honest conversation with author and journalist Monique Morris, author of "Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools".  In her book, Morris shares compelling stories of girls who have been marginalized and degraded, according to Morris, by the very institutions designed to teach them to be successful in society.  She talks about how zero-tolerance policies and judgment only serve to alienate girls who are already struggling with issues like poverty and difficult home lives.  She also offers solutions that will allow Black girls to live and learn with dignity, respect and opportunity.  Join us for  Another View, Friday, September 16 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
