Power & Health | KCET
“Power and Health” examines the underlying sociological and economic forces that determine our health and how those forces are shaped by power. Our health goes beyond eating well, exercising, doctors, and good genes. Research has shown that where you live, where you work, your economic status, and the race the world around you has assigned to you have the greatest impact on your wellbeing.
At the heart of these conditions is power. Power is understood as the ability to achieve a purpose and create change. Power may come in a variety of forms, but ultimately it shapes how society functions and who gets to shape the world around us.
“Power and Health” brings on some of today’s most innovative thinkers, economists, sociologists, epidemiologists and community members like Dr. Camara Jones, Eric Liu, and Dr. Manuel Pastor to dive into the power structures throughout history and today that have shaped our health.
