Events in recent years, as well as startling statistics on equity around the world, have kick-started long overdue conversations about the impact of systemic racism on health outcomes. Our approach to DEI is constantly evolving and growing to anticipate and address these urgent needs.

I envision a future where we have a more equitable healthcare system as a direct result of increased diversity within the healthcare workforce itself. Our Race to Health Equity is a catalyst for that vision. As the world’s largest healthcare company, progress can be achieved when we foster a health equity mindset across all elements of our business. Only then can we hope to create meaningful change in healthcare to better meet the needs of people of color. It starts with us.

Over the last year, we've been reminded that systemic racism has had a devastating impact on our society. For centuries, health inequities have contributed to Black Americans and people of color suffering worse health outcomes than their white neighbors. This six-episode series, hosted by Michael Sneed, former Executive Vice President, Johnson & Johnson, features conversations with Black doctors and nurses on the front lines of health equity with the hope that by Starting the Conversation and listening, we create empathy. Through empathy, we gain understanding. And, through understanding, we inspire change.
Episode 6
Birmingham, AL: Overcoming Historic Racism in Health
Any effort to close the racial health equity gap must include Blacks living in rural areas that are fighting localized and systemic issues of poverty, food insecurity and healthcare access. Those efforts also face issues of distrust in public health systems. Michael Sneed, former Executive Vice President, Johnson & Johnson, travels to the heart of Alabama’s “Black Belt” in this episode and finds that, despite daunting statistics and low public health rankings, community leaders are working hard to erase the stain of racism still very much in people’s memories and regain trust in public health programs.

If these conversations speak to you, please consider joining the effort by learning more about the National Medical Fellowships and National Black Nurses Association.
