Podcast Episode: COVID-19 Pandemic 7: Both pandemic and syndemic – how clusters of preexisting comorbid conditions have driven up fatalities. Featuring Dr. Emily Mendenhall and Dr. Robert Like.
Medical anthropology may not be the first discipline we associate with public health, but it provides perspectives that are vital to understanding the many and complex intersections at the root of health disparities. Syndemics are clusters of epidemics with synergies that reinforce each other, and are driven in part by social, environmental and political determinants. Can the syndemic concept help us better understand why certain populations are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and does viewing disparities through the syndemics lens offer insights into potential solutions? Featuring host Dr. Mary O’Connor, with Dr. Emily Mendenhall and Dr. Robert Like.
