Dr. Hancock brings to light the immense racial inequities present in the nation's healthcare and law enforcement systems, injustices that have only been exacerbated by a pandemic which, \"has revealed the ugliness within this country that has existed since its inception.\" Dr. Yolandra Hancock is a much sought-after, double board-certified pediatrician and obesity specialist, who's background includes degrees from UCLA and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She completed her medical residency at the acclaimed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, where she gained considerable knowledge and experience while working with some of the nation's leading physicians. Currently, as the founder of Delta Health \u0026 Wellness Consulting and in working with community organizations like the Green Scheme and DC Greens, Dr. Hancock continues to be a tireless advocate for public health reform, education and fighting pediatric health disparities. She is helping to raise up the next generation of physicians and public health professionals with her role as a professor at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at The George Washington University and The George Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Hancock plans to become the “21st Century Dr. Spock,” using technology to transform children's health and tackle health disparities. Most recently in her first ever attempt, she applied and was awarded National Institute of Health (NIH) funding to further her work in childhood obesity prevention and care by developing technology to tackle the pediatric obesity epidemic. In addition, she was recently selected to serve as the advisor to the Prince George's County Board of Health and was named a BMe Social Determinants of Health Vanguard Fellow, which identifies Black leaders across the country who are working to build healthy communities through addressing the social determinants of health from an asset-framed lens. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
