Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who has firsthand experience with public health emergencies, joined Detroit Today to share her thoughts on the current state of the pandemic. “We have to proactively invest in public health infrastructure,” says Hanna-Attisha. She adds that while the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated economic and racial inequalities, the medical community is finally taking these disparities seriously."I’m so glad that the medical community is finally at a place of recognizing their role in perpetuating racism...this national reckoning where we are at right now is fantastic and we have a long way to go,” says Dr. Mona.
