In the second of our two-part series on race, racism, and health, we’re talking to pediatrician and researcher Dr. Nia Heard-Garris about talking to kids and loved ones about racism: why it’s important, how to maintain momentum, and where on earth to start if you have not already.
In Part 1 of our 2-part series on race, we discuss what terms like "anti-racism" and “white privilege” really mean, and we share our own personal experiences with race. In our first guest interview on this podcast, pediatrician and expert Dr. Jacqueline Dougé examines the science on how racism affects health and what we can do to change the system.
As we mourn the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many more, we’ve been moved by protests demanding racial equality and an end to police brutality. We are postponing our previously planned episode and instead have a brief episode with a few anti-racism resources. We'll have more to come soon.
