Hear from the New York City Dept. of Health First Deputy Commissioner, Chief Equity Officer

“I was called to public health service because of my passion for social justice, health equity and movement building. During my time at the Department of Health, I have worked to advance and operationalize an equity framework to achieve the health outcomes that all people deserve,” said First Deputy Commissioner Dr. Torian Easterling. “As we face this unprecedented crisis of the intersection of the COVID-19 pandemic and longstanding racial inequalities, we must work even more diligently to combat the systemic health inequities such as violence, chronic disease and maternal health outcomes. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with communities and key stakeholders across this great city to reimagine our city and communities to live healthier lives.”
