Stephen Bezruchka is a graduate of Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford universities. He now is an Associate Teaching Professor Emeritus, Health Systems, and Population Health at the University of Washington. He worked for three decades as an emergency physician. In “Inequity Kills Us All” Bezruchka takes a deep dive into the global health data and considers his years of experience as an ER doctor and a public health educator to expose how unjust economics adds up to poor health and higher mortality, and how living in a society with entrenched hierarchies increases the negative effects of illnesses for everyone, and early life lasts a lifetime.
