Education is one of the most important modifiable social determinants of health. Despite the power of higher education, many health disparities persist for marginalized and racialized populations. Nicole Vick, TEDx Speaker and Amazon Best Selling Author of Pushing Through: Finding The Light in Every Lesson, joins the Public Health Insight Podcast to discuss the role of education as a social determinant of health, examine racism in higher education as a barrier to the success of racialized students and graduates, and the importance of informal education or public health literacy.
