Podcast Episode: Primary care, private practice: A dedicated physician tackles zip code related health disparities.
Cleveland, Ohio native Carla Harwell, MD has had “boots on the ground” working to eliminate health disparities in the Cleveland area for many years. As an African American setting up a primary care private practice in an underserved location, Carla was very conscious that zip codes often define health and determine life expectancy, along with other social determinants.
