The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour

Healthcare Disparities


Hinckley Institute Radio Hour — This week on the program, we air a discussion on healthcare disparities in the United States and in Utah. In our nation and state, affordability, accessibility and quality of care individuals receive vary dramatically based on socioeconomic status, race, geography, gender identity, and more. Our panelists address how these inequalities came about, what barriers keep people from receiving care and discuss solutions to creating greater health equity.

On today’s panel are Rebecca Chavez-Houck, former representative in the Utah Legislature; Dulce A. Díez, Director of the Utah Department of Health’s Office of Health Disparities; Dr. Ivette Lopez, professor of Public Health, Family and Preventative Medicine at the University of Utah; and Dr. José Rodríguez, AVP for Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Utah. Moderating today’s panel is Jessie Mandle, Senior Health Policy Analyst for Voices for Utah Children.

This forum was presented in partnership with AARP Utah and the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Utah.

This forum was recorded on September 2, 2020.
