From The Frontline: Dr. Jennifer Avegno
Health inequity is just one of the major issues that has been magnified by the COVID-19 crisis, but it’s one that Dr. Jennifer Avegno reckons with on a daily basis. She’s the director of the New Orleans Health Department, and since March, she’s become the public face of the city’s pandemic response. Dr. Avegno discusses her singular experience of the crisis in this edition of the Historic New Orleans Collection’s series, From The Frontline.
This NOLA Life Stories interview was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection and produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
