It has been almost six months that COVID-19 has been with us here in the United States. Yet we are still debating many things about the virus.
On this episode Allison talks to Dr. Elizabeth Culatta, a medical sociologist and assistant professor in the Department of Social Sciences at Augusta University, about the socioeconomic impact of the pandemic and societal norms behind Americans’ attitudes towards wearing masks. She also talks about the healthcare disparities being brought to the forefront of the conversation due to the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Who’s that Lady (from History)? is Fanny Brice.
