Or listen and subscribe via podcast;
In this episode, ND student Kailey Williams joins me to discuss some extremely important topics such as what implicit bias is, how these biases impact healthcare and health outcomes, how we can check our own implicit biases, how we can be better allies and make it a lifestyle change, and even some ways in which our education must improve to better represent all BIPOC for the sake of better treatments and health outcomes.
We unpack a lot but this will be an ongoing conversation of how we, as a profession, can continue to do better.
