We are excited to share the second episode of Vital Voices Season 3, a podcast of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.

This episode’s transcript is available here.

Today’s episode features Rahul Vanjani, MD, MSc, an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Dr. Vanjani also serves as medical director of Amos House, a Rhode Island nonprofit providing social and healthcare services to individuals experiencing homelessness. In this role, he runs an interprofessional clinic at Amos House that integrates social care into the practice of medicine. 

Dr. Vanjani provides powerful insight and perspective on serving the underserved and models the importance of addressing the social determinants of health. As a Macy Faculty Scholar, Dr. Vanjani is expanding the Social Medicine elective, which he launched in 2021 at Brown University, to professions beyond medicine, including nursing, pharmacy, social work, and law. 

As always, we hope that you will share the podcast with your social media networks. Look for episode three next week, and if you are interested in hearing more about the Macy Faculty Scholars Program, we encourage you to check out our website and subscribe to Vital Voices wherever you get your podcasts.
