Mapping Racial Biases in Medicine during Covid-19 with Dr. Sydne Ford #157

BY: Andrea Nakayama

DATE: 2020-08-28

Today Dr. Sydne Ford takes on a big topic — one we can hardly do justice in our short time together, but one that we aim to address with honesty and candor. Please take the time to tune-in to this important episode where we not only discuss disparities in medicine, but also ways in which we in the Functional Medicine & Nutrition communities can start to make a difference.

“If the heartbeat of racism is denial, the heartbeat of anti-racism is confession. To be anti-racist is to admit when we’ve done wrong, so we can begin to do right.” – Ibram X Kendi
