Zippy's Video of the Week: Dr. Camara Jones Explains the Cliff of Good Health

September 30, 2021

Everyone should have the opportunity to achieve good health. But, as Camara Phyllis Jones, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., explains through her cliff analogy, that’s often not the case.

We can reduce health disparities and better connect people to high-quality medical care, but to really make a difference, we need to address the social determinants of health and equity that protect some people and push others off the cliff.

Dr. Jones will present the closing plenary at NCFR 2021, titled "Four Allegories: Tools for Naming Racism and Moving to Action."

This video was a collaboration between Dr. Jones and the Urban Institute.
