90. How Healthcare Disparities Are Keeping Women From Getting Well and How To Combat Inequity.
Real and meaningful inequities are present in our everyday lives. Today, we’re looking at the disparities in health care, and why serving your community to combat these disparities is so important.
First, we hear from Dr. Maria Hernandez who is President and COO of Impact For Health, a California firm focused on health care innovations that advance health equities. She helps health care systems develop strategies, recruit and develop talent, and engage with their patients and communities to overcome health care disparities wherever they exist.
She discusses how healthcare systems can better serve vulnerable populations, and how women can better advocate better for themselves in the health care system.
After that, business owner, entrepreneur and mom Rachael James shares how she is establishing a business while contributing to her community, including why she chose to plant her family’s roots in an underserved, neglected urban area.
She recently founded Wild Alabaster, which works to bring crystals into a modern lifestyle in an inspirational and sustainable way. We talk about how to use intuition to bring crystal energy into your everyday life.
