Did Theresa Bervell’s cousin die of COVID-19 because he was Black? Why were Black people four times more likely to die from COVID than white people? In this first segment of a four-part series, a medical family explores racism and systemic inequities in healthcare following their painful, personal loss. Theresa, a matriarch and doctor, wonders if an ambulance would have arrived sooner had her ailing cousin not been Black. Her daughter, Rachel, who’s also a doctor, and her son, Joel, a medical student, help begin to find answers and solutions. Edit credit: Sean Collins
