We explore the complex factors contributing to ethnic health disparities in the United States with our guest, Melody T. McCloud, an obstetrician-gynecologist who was bestowed a Distinguished Alumni Award by Emory University School of Medicine. Since 1958, only fourteen women have been so honored, and Dr. McCloud is only the third Black woman to receive this prestigious recognition. We’ll discuss the impact of psychosocial stressors, access to health care, cultural competence, and the role of diet and lifestyle in shaping health outcomes for Hispanic, Black, and Asian populations. Melody will also share insights on successful community initiatives, the effects of historical trauma, and the urgent need for policy changes to address these disparities.

Melody T. McCloud is an obstetrician-gynecologist.

She discusses the KevinMD article, “Breaking down the link between social rejection and Black women’s health outcomes.”
