Editor’s note: A livestream of the conversation is embedded below.

This February, STAT published our first STATUS List. This annual project aims to be the most definitive accounting of impactful individuals in health, medicine, and science. Some are well-known as changemakers; others are largely unheralded heroes. But all have compelling stories to tell. Now, in our STATUS List Spotlight series, you’ll hear from some of these individuals. You’ll get the chance to better understand their stories and their journeys to change health and medicine.


Physicians and health equity champions Uché and Oni Blackstock sit down with STAT reporter Nicholas St. Fleur for the first in this series. We’ll learn about their early life, explore some of the most impactful moments in their careers so far, and take some time to look ahead.

Featured Speakers:

  • Oni Blackstock, M.D., MHS, founder & executive director, Health Justice
  • Uché Blackstock, M.D., founder and CEO, Advancing Health Equity
  • Nicholas St. Fleur, general assignment reporter; associate editorial director of events, STAT (moderator)
  • Garth Graham, M.D., MPH, director and global head of YouTube Health (sponsor speaker)
