“​​Black Americans with diabetes are more likely to die than white Americans with diabetes across the country and across every single one of the largest 30 cities in the country.”

In this episode, Dr. Buscemi talks about her research in diabetes mortality by race. We talk about the United States cities with the worst health disparities, how inequality affects diabetes mortality, and how health policy can be changed to fix this.


Dr. Joanna Buscemi is a Clinical Health Psychologist and Assistant Professor at DePaul University specializing in health inequities. She also serves as the Health Policy Council Chair at the Society of Behavioral Medicine.
