Patricia Kullberg speaks with Leslie Gregory, a local health practitioner and activist who is at the forefront of the campaign to get racism declared a public health crisis. Gregory is the founder and director of the local non-profit Right to Health, whose vision is to to create a national network of healthcare providers, scientists, and community leaders who are committed to dismantling the effects of racism across all ethnic groups, and particularly Black Americans. Patricia and Leslie speak about her vision and how she was inspired by the health care programs of the Black Panthers.
