May 4: Communities of Color: Unjust Health Disparities and Impacts

Houston is admired for being one of the most diverse cities in America, but it is still one of the most segregated. Are Houstonians prepared to make concessions that are important for the improvement of communities of color and to reject the underlying tradition of white supremacy?

Elena Marks advocates for hard wiring health practices into our community. Institutional racism, discrimination, and inequitable access to food, shelter, and jobs are significant drivers of the very health conditions that lower quality of life and shorten its span. This has become more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, when 90% of deaths in this country occur in people with underlying medical conditions. Ms. Marks regards the pandemic as a potential turning point in the regional approach to health when we become willing to invest in upstream social services to lighten the downstream need for acute health care.
