Racial Disparities in Healthcare (Installment 2 with Dr. Kooka Joseph)
In our continuing mini series "Racial Disparities in Healthcare", we have the great honor of hearing from Dr. Kooka Joseph, a palliative/hospice care healer, mother of two, and all-star doctor. She discusses her experiences in moving to the US from Haiti to continue her medical education, and what she has seen from both a patient and physician viewpoint. She enlightens us on what it means to provide end-of-life care for patients and families, and how much culture and racial/ethnic differences play into how we want to be treated in the most vulnerable of times. She provides actionable steps to how we may forge a better way forward in our treatment of Black patients and their families, as well as Black healthcare providers.
