In this Joespeak! Podcast, Executive Dora Barilla shares her experience as a healthcare strategist, executive, educator, and entrepreneur. She is president and co-founder of HC2 Strategies Inc, a transformational leadership and strategic planning firm based in Southern California, and the newly designated Public Health Officer for McCune Wright Arevalo. Dora talks about public health as a cornerstone of community infrastructure, and how COVID-19 laid bare the progress yet to be made in availability of public health related services. Finally, Dora discusses the equity implications of public health, and, looking toward the future, makes the case for a legal services component to whole person health.
