Our special guest, ALICIA COULTER, Masters in Public Health (MPH) & Masters in Social Work (MSW) & special guest co-host, Diversity Consultant, LATRICE ROSS drops by to discuss the contentious relationship BLACK WOMEN too often face with their DOCTOR'S and HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS. We ask her about the various health disparities specific to BLACK WOMEN, such as the fact that MATERNAL MORTALITY is two to six times higher for BLACK WOMEN based on where they live in the U.S. In 2021 why are BLACK WOMEN still provided less anesthesia during their surgeries?  Why are BLACK WOMEN often turned away, then later diagnosed with a medical complication that could've been discovered with proper screening?  What about the COVID 19 VACCINES & BLACK WOMEN'S MENUSTRAL CYCLES? How can the AFRICAN AMERICAN community as whole effectively advocate for EQUITABLE HEALTH CARE? Can pushing more AFRICAN AMERICAN youth to be DOCTORS & SCIENTISTS help level the playing field?  MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
