Eleanor Health CMO on Addressing Racism Among Marginalized Communities

Addressing racism is a marathon, not a sprint. Healthcare leaders must be willing to take the first step to initiate heavy conversations that drive progress.

Says Dr. Nzinga Harrison, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Eleanor Health, there is a direct correlation between someone experiencing weathering (a “fight or flight” physiological reaction) to them possibly developing health problems like high blood pressure, obesity, cardiovascular illness, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and more down the road.

To learn more about weathering, health equity, and more, Elizabeth Southerlan, Principal in Oliver Wyman’s Health and Life Sciences Practice, sat down with Dr. Harrison to talk about the psychological burden of racism as an independent risk factor for health.
