Coping with a global pandemic can try our patience, but Dr. Greg's guest, author Antonia Malchik, says walking could be an excellent way to gain some control over our health and circumstances.

This week Dr. Greg talks with Dr. Scottie Day, chair of the department of pediatrics for Kentucky Children's Hospital about newly released American Academy of Pediatrics' safety guidance for the reopening of schools this fall.  He says while something looks good and prudent on paper, putting it into practice will likely be a challenge.  He also talks about how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has put renewed emphasis on the expansion of telehealth options.

Despite the precautionary measures society has taken — the current global pandemic has had a disproportionate toll on Black communities.  This week on Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine we talk with Dr. Anita Fernander, Associate Professor in the UK College of Medicine, founder and chair of the Lexington-Fayette County Health Disparities Coalition, and program director for Black Boys and Men in Medicine.  She talks specifically about health disparities in the Black community during the COVID-19 pandemic and says the answer has more to do with 400 years of history than biology.
