Description of Fellowship
David worked with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to identify approaches and methods to address persistent health and racial inequities, how hospitals are considering and addressing upstream factors of social determinants of health, and how hospitals consider structural racism as a contributor to health inequities. Using a series of interviews and background research on hospitals across Massachusetts, David ultimately developed a comprehensive report for internal and external stakeholder use.
