Black Voices in Healthcare: Joy

The legacy of anti-Blackness runs deep, but we are so much more than Black pain. We are strong, we are creative, we are exuberant, and we are doing great things. After taking a moment to honor our collective grief in last week’s episode, this week we wanted to focus on what makes us come alive. This series is brought to you by the California Medical Association and the California Health Care Foundation.

Black Voices in Healthcare

There is so much to explore about what it means to be Black in healthcare, but for our first episode we wanted to take a moment to sit with the grief of the event that set this whole project into motion: the murder of George Floyd, a Black man, by a white police officer in Minneapolis. This series is brought to you by the California Medical Association and the California Health Care Foundation. Learn more on our website. Illustrations by Ashley Floreal. Original music by Janae E.

Featuring Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Stories from a Pandemic: Bad Trip

It takes surprisingly little for the human psyche to come undone. We know that the virus can’t survive when we isolate ourselves, the question is, can we survive the isolation? Today’s voices include an ER nurse, a medical student, a geriatrician, a maternal and fetal medicine fellow, a vaccine trial subject, a primary care doctor, a pediatrics medical resident, as well as some unexpected voices. This episode features Bill Conti’s Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky).

Stories from a Pandemic: Insomnia

Over the past few weeks, there have been so many news articles about healthcare workers as heroes, or soldiers fighting the battle of coronavirus. For some people this language may ring true, but for others, this metaphor feels wrong. Who gets to tell this story? And how? This week you’ll hear voices from diarists based in CA, NY, NJ, MD, and PA. They include a geriatrician, a pediatric and an adult emergency physicians, an ER nurse, a hospitalist and historian of medicine, and two medical students.
