I am so grateful for the participation of the panel in the roundtable discussion on Bridging the Gaps in Functional Medicine, COVID-19 & Racial Disparities.
Even now, we continue to witness a rise in COVID-19 cases. In particular, we are looking at a pandemic within a pandemic: Comorbidities including diabetes, hypertension and obesity are associated with much worse COVID outcome. Furthermore, in the US, black people are far more likely to suffer with these comorbidities and thus COVID mortality rates are higher with people of color.
Functional Medicine is well positioned to address the pandemic of chronic disease. However, how can we work together to improve access to FxMed to build the bridge for racial equity?
In this roundtable discussion, I am joined by Dr. Alauna, Dr. Safiya McCarter, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, Dr Patrick Hanaway and Brent Eck where we address these all-important themes.
This is our longest Clinic Immersion sponsored webinar to date. The conversation was so engaging we continued the discussion for over 2 hours!
If you missed it or couldn’t catch the whole event, it’s not too late to watch (or re-watch) the webinar. The full recording is available for a limited time on demand.
Thank you to Metagenics Institute for their support in making this program happen!
