Barnes and... A Conversation With Dr. David Williams
Diabetes, hypertension and other cardio-pulmonary ailments, tobacco and alcohol abuse -- a huge problem for the country and Arkansas in particular; and the toll among minority groups is especially serious. To make matters worse, high mortality in the African-American community is a road block to racial reconciliation. Say that again? Dr. David Williams can, and will. A professor at Harvard University's School of Public Health, Williams offers persuassive evidence that Arkansas and the nation is shooting itself not in the one but both feet by failing to address public health issues among all our people.
