Interview: Zoha Mian & Onu Udoh (Grow502) on Health Disparities
This week on Sustainability Now!, your host, UofL's Sustainability Coordinator, Dr. Justin Mog, talks health disparities with two Medical Students at the University of Louisville who co-founded Grow502. Onu Udoh is a third year student and Zoha Mian is in her second year, while also serving as an Advocacy research Intern for the Louisville Community Grocery, a proud Forward Radio underwriter.
West Louisville has a dense history of segregation, redlining and lack of access to simple commodities like fresh food and affordable healthcare. As a way of healing and reconciliation, in Spring 2021, the UofL School of Medicine’s chapter of the American Medical Association began a Grow 502 Health Disparities Series guided by the 2017 Louisville Metro Health Equity Report to educate and empower our Louisville community to engage in the reimagining of healthcare and public health.
