To address health disparities, Hennepin Healthcare turns to local youth

“We all understand and know the health disparities that we are facing, especially our black and brown communities. The inequities are real and they’re very prominent in Minnesota,” said Nneka Sederstrom, PhD, chief health equity officer at Hennepin Healthcare. “We also know from the data that one of the best, easiest, and quickest ways to decrease disparities within our black and brown communities is to have clinicians of the same race and ethnicity take care of those patients.”
