Who’s affected most by COVID and why? Who deserves to receive care? And how can we treat everyone equally – both in society and in the hospital? This week’s episode of Contakt World dives into the hot-button issues of race, equal access to healthcare, and the political determinants of health – specifically, how historic inequities in our health system have never been more apparent. As COVID disproportionately affects communities of color, we talk with national health equity leader Daniel E. Dawes, executive director of Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta. A co-founder of the Health Equity Leadership and Exchange Network (HELEN) and Author of The Political Determinants of Health, Daniel shares unique insights from the frontlines of the healthcare reform movement, and provides a thorough overview of how we, as a country, even got here.

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
