Health care shares a special place in my heart. My mom spent over 20 years as a bone marrow and stem cell transplant nurse in Chicago. As in education, race is a strong predictor of future health outcomes. I feel driven to the work to redesign systems and structures that perpetuate these disparity gaps and inequitable outcomes.
