Kristen Nwanyanwu: Vision and Equity (Health & Veritas Ep. 59)

On the Health & Veritas podcast, Yale physician-professors Howard Forman and Harlan Krumholz talk about the latest news and ideas in healthcare and seek out the truth amid the noise. In this episode, Harlan reports on new research on effective prostate cancer screening; Howie explores the potential of the AI language model ChatGPT. And they’re joined by Kristen Nwanyanwu, a Yale ophthalmologist with a focus on closing the racial gap in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
