Description

In this episode Kristine and Radhika discuss how systemic racism in our nation's insurance driven, for profit health care system results in poorer health outcomes, lower life expectancy and reduced quality of life for people of color. Reforming our health care system could be the first domino to fall in toppling the racism inherent in other systems as well.


Dr. Kristine Hembre (co-chair of El Paso County for Universal Health Care and Life Coach at Med Pro Coaching.com) became interested in Universal Health Care in 2015 after retiring from private practice medical care in Colorado Springs. Kristine’s involvement in the medical care infra-structure and payment system, allows her to speak with honesty and insight. Her stories and grasp of the present health care environment help inform others to make better choices.


Radhika Nath (policy expert and a disability rights advocate) has a doctorate in public administration and policy. She has worked in the healthcare sector at the state level and in national and international settings. Her political engagement includes a run for office, serving as the Bernie2020 campaign’s state co-chair, and becoming a member-elect of the Democratic National Committee. She believes in healthcare as a human right and is actively engaged in making that a reality.
