In the "Epidemic Podcast" Episode 13, Dr. Celine Gounder and Ron Klain speak with Dr. Helene Gayle, CEO of the Chicago Community Trust, and Dr. Aletha Maybank, the Chief Equity Officer at the American Medical Association, about the health and wealth gaps that exist in poorer communities in the US, and how COVID-19 has widened these gaps, leaving members of these communities more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19.


They also discuss how racial stereotypes are affecting many people's abilities to follow public health guidelines, such as the use of face masks.
