Dr. Esther Choo on the Boston Public Library Repairing America Series
Dr. Esther Choo is an Associate Professor in the Center for Policy and Research in Emergency Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University and a Founding Member for TIME’SUP Healthcare. She joins Boston Public Library President David Leonard for a conversation about equity in our health care system.

Racism is embedded in nearly every aspect of the health and well-being of our population, affecting everything from risk for disease, access to healthcare, and health outcomes of all kinds. Using her expertise in public health, emergency care, substance use disorders, and women's health, Dr. Choo highlights the challenges to health equity in the 21st century.

A physician and popular health and science communicator, Dr. Esther Choo is known as a bold and innovative voice on gender and racial equity in healthcare and an advocate for new frameworks for building positive and productive workplaces.

This talk is part of the esteemed Lowell Lecture Series funded by the Lowell Institute, and the Repairing America Initiative, the Boston Public Library's pledge to focus its 2021 programming and services on bridging the gaps that divide America. By prioritizing economic recovery, civic engagement, COVID-19 recovery, racial equity, workforce development, and youth engagement, the BPL is working to help Americans rise above the challenges they face.
