Let's Talk About... Wellness and Sexual Health Advocacy
Jul 10, 2020 Season 1 Episode 12
Mom Of All Capes

How does implicit bias, racism, and inequity determine the type of care that patients receive when they go to the doctor or the emergency room? What is the work being done to actively empower those disproportionately impacted by sexual health and other health disparities? How would addressing the inequities of those at the margins, improve healthcare outcomes for all? 

In this episode, we sit down with Renee Pitter MPH, who has dedicated her life to wellness and sexual health advocacy. Learn more about her work on the Center for sexuality and health disparities website: https://www.sexualityandhealth.org/ 

If you’re inspired by this episode, we encourage you to donate to work being done to improve wellness and sexual health outcomes.
