The Society for the Analysis of African American Public Health Issues (SAAPHI) consists of researchers, academics, professionals, and students who share an interest and passion in improving the health of African American communities. This is accomplished through research, leadership/mentorship and policy. SAAPHI continues to grow and poise itself as a premier research and education organization dedicated to examining the role of race, and more specifically racism, as a contributing factor in determining the health status of African Americans.
My special guest in this episode is Dr. Sandy-Asari Hogan, who is the current president of SAAPHI. She describes herself as having the passion for translation of research to practice and describes herself as a “disrupter of disparity and elevator of equity”. In essence, she sees herself as a bridge between research and practice.
