How medical student loan forgiveness can advance health equity
Join us as we welcome Katrina Gipson, an emergency medicine physician, to discuss the intersection of student loan debt and health equity. As the Supreme Court reviews the Biden Administration’s Student Loan Forgiveness Program, Katrina sheds light on the disproportionate impact of student loan debt on underrepresented minorities in medicine. The episode explores how high levels of debt can limit career choices for medical students and worsen health care outcomes for minority communities. We delve into the ways in which systemic racism and lack of access to resources contribute to the student loan debt crisis and how loan forgiveness can serve as a tool for health equity.
Katrina Gipson is an emergency medicine physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Student loan forgiveness: a key step in achieving health equity for minority physicians and patients.”
