Dr. Ken Redcross, MD, author of, “Bond: The 4 Cornerstones of a Lasting and Caring Relationship with Your Doctor,” runs his own concierge personalized medical practice designed to enhance the patient-doctor relationship while providing convenient access to a full spectrum of healthcare services and holistic and wellness counseling. He joins us today to discuss theories on why COVID-19 might be affecting more African Americans than any other population, including Black children who are being hospitalized at a rate five times higher than white children according to new data from the CDC. Comorbidities like hypertension, diabetes and vitamin D deficiencies are all tied to COVID-19 complications and disproportionately affect the Black community, but the alarming rates at which COVID-19 is killing Black Americans extends beyond these comorbidities and may be attributed to other factors such as inequitable access to testing and treatment and withholding racial/ethnicity data from reports on virus outcomes. Dr. Redcross will discuss recommended health changes that can help disproportionately affected communities.
