Dr. Shika Pappoe, Chief Medical Officer at Strive Health, is a nephrologist with a blended background in medicine, public health, and business administration. In this episode, she and Joy Rios talk in-depth about kidney disease and Dr. Pappoe’s work at one of the country’s largest safety-net hospitals, where she’s able to focus her energies on providing care to underserved communities.
One in three adults in the U.S. is at risk for chronic kidney disease, many of whom do not understand the full spectrum of the disease and how it impacts themselves or their loved ones. Dr. Pappoe works to get resources and education into the hands of both providers and the general public to increase awareness of chronic kidney disease.
