Talking about Anti-Racism and Health Equity
The final episode in season two of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange Podcast explores how Medicaid leaders can be effective and authentic communicators of anti-racism and health equity to their agency and externally.
In this episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, Tekisha Everette, executive director, Health Equity Solutions, Lisa Lee, commissioner, at the Kentucky Department of Medicaid Services, and Jim Jones, Medicaid Director, at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, explore the importance of finding common ground within an agency on equity-related terminology and creating a “brave space” to have conversations about equity.
