Black people don’t like to go to the doctor. That’s
something we’ve heard and experienced time and time again, and it
doesn’t just come out of nowhere. There’s a deep history of medical
trauma and mistrust in the Black community, and it makes total
sense that Black people don’t want to go somewhere they don’t feel
safe or seen. Today we’re talking with Dr. Rashawn Ray about the
impacts of living in a racialized healthcare system.
In This Episode We’ll Cover:
• The history of medical mistrust within the black community and how this ties into black people not wanting to go to the doctor
• Systemic conditions that impact racial health disparities
• How these systemic conditions have manifested during COVID
• Things health care providers can do to make their care more inclusive and compassionate
• Ways patients can be better advocates for themselves when stepping into a doctors office + MORE!
