Thank you so much for your time Dr. Harris. Working in an safety net system, so much of what you say rings true. What do you think are the most important conversations to have with our patients in a clinic setting?
How can DEI initiatives move from “political correctness” to empowerment of targeted vulnerable populations and communities?

thanks so much Dr Harris for all your work! can you help us understand how we can help prevent homelessness given that the predisposition to it often starts very early in life and so many have mental illness? l

I feel as if students of color schools need to see other health care physicians of color to “see” that it is possible. as an academic physician, what tools have you utilized to be successful in finding time and support in these outreach and mentoring opportunities when they do not directly generate revenue? it is difficult to account for the community need on paper...
Love the concept of narrative medicine. Physicians are some of the most powerful health equity advocates, when they work "with" and not "for" their patients. Patient storytelling is a powerful tool in advocacy.
AMA has been appropriately vocal at times on the public health crisis of gun violence. Where does this topic currently stand as a priority and what can we do at a state/local level to have the greatest impact?
The allostatic load of black women leaders is immeasurable.

enlightening presentation. Thank you so much!
