Guest: Dr. Nusheen Ameenuddin is currently an Assistant Professor and Consultant (tenured staff physician) in the Division of Community Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. 

Summary:  Flu and cold season is an annual concern for people around the world. Specifically in the United States, there are massive disparities in both care and outcomes for communities of color related to both diagnosis and treatment of flu and cold. On this episode of the RISE for Equity podcast, Dr. Nusheen Ameenuddin joins host Nicole Nfonoyim-Hara to discuss COVID’s impact on cold and flu, protecting our communities, and how we can improve education and access to care for marginalized communities. 

“The truth of the matter is genetically, we're all very similar. It's not an issue of race, it's an issue of racism. When we actually step back, people can be like, ‘Oh, that situation was a one-off.’ And when we actually look at the data, it's not a one-off. The fact is, we're not asking the right questions, and we need to look deeper to ensure that we are providing the best possible care, the most objective care, the most patient-centered care, particularly when we see that we're falling short. And, and the numbers don't lie.” - Dr. Nusheen Ameenuddin
