SkinnyTrees

Welcome back! SkinnyTrees is happy to return with its second season. In this first episode of season two we bring back Dr. Melissa Simon to discuss what we have been up to since you last heard from us. Dr. Simon introduces an exciting new center launched this year -- the Center for Health Equity Transformation (CHET). She explains the work this center aims to do and how it is taking a different approach. Dr. Simon stresses why health equity is important and required to lift health for all. We review a few key terms that might be helpful in future episodes and understanding the work we want to highlight along the way. Stay tuned for the next episode with the former Commissioner of the Department of Public Health -- Dr. Julie Morita!
