Dr. Leigh Callahan is Professor of Medicine & OAAA. As an epidemiologist, Dr. Callahan seeks to understand how outcomes of osteoarthritis are influenced by factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, location, and social determinants of health (such as socioeconomic status). In this week’s podcast Dr. Callahan shares some important findings and discusses how a range of disparate outcomes and health disparities could be addressed. Dr. Callahan also discusses how it is vital that everyone has access to fundamental healthcare services, physical activity, and nutrition.
