KCSB News and Sports · In Conversation with Dr. Jason Prystowsky: Health Care Disparities in the Emergency Room

Health care disparities for communities of color were made ever more apparent in emergency rooms during the pandemic. Dr. Jason Prystowsky, a featured panelist in KCSB News’ upcoming webinar event, shares his experiences as an emergency physician and what he’s learned from his work.

On Tuesday, May 18 at 4 PM, KCSB News brings you A Year in COVID: Medical Racism, Care Disparities, & Health Misinformation – a critical discussion of how racial health inequity prevents marginalized communities from accessing quality care. Our panelists – public health leaders, medical professionals, and community advocates – will also explore the dangers of health misinformation during times of crisis and the role of communication in medical mistrust.
