Episode notes

"We are taking charge of our community. And Dr. Aboelata has coined this phrase years ago, healing our community from within. And we do have to look into ourselves to help heal what ills our communities"-Aquil Naji

Over the past two-plus years, our community health care centers have faced many challenges in an ever-changing landscape, forcing them to adapt and evolve their outreach and delivery of both health care and comprehensive wrap-around support services to the most at-risk members of our community. 

Welcome to our hour plus special discussion on the importance of our community health care centers and how they are being impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. In this episode we are featuring the voices and work of the award-winning Founder Noha Aboelata, MD, Chief Operations Officer Aquil Naji, and staff member Ky'Tavia Stafford-Carreker of Roots Community Health Center. They will share with us how their work addresses the root causes of health and economic disparities for people impacted by systemic inequities, as well as how their work is improving outcomes for people impacted by these systemic inequities.
