Joel Bervell, a medical student, observes that Black people disproportionately serve in essential, yet low-paying jobs such as bus drivers, janitorial workers, fast-food employees, grocery clerks – jobs that put them in contact with the public and thus at greater risk for infection from the pandemic. In this third installment of a four-part series examining inequities in healthcare, the Bervell family examines the medical profession’s role in systemic disparities. Edit credit: Sean Collins
