Podcast | Nursing Today | S1:E3 | We're More Diverse—Now What?

Commit to unwavering excellence.

There is a factor intrinsic in every human being that can prevent us from achieving excellence in healthcare equity. Discover what that factor is and how understanding its impact can change the way we approach patient care. In this podcast, Dr. Kenya Beard encourages providers and key stakeholders to reflect on the challenges of healthcare equality. She shares critical approaches to the advancement of health equity and explores ways in which healthcare providers can make a difference in treating all patients equally.
