AJPH AUGUST 2020: "HARNESSING POLICE BRUTALITY: IS THIS A REVOLUTION?"(ENGLISH)
Why is police brutality a public health problem? Why is there a need for more evidence to control a phenomenon that is blatantly harmful at a mass scale? What should be the role of PH departments if funds are diverted from the police to social services? And is the current uprising some form of revolution? My four guests are Sirry Alang (Lehigh University), Mary Bassett (former Commissioner of Health for New York City), Lisa Bowleg, (George Washington University and AJPH), Leana Wen (former Baltimore's Health Commissioner).
