Medical Injustices, Distrust, Disparities, and Black Communities
On episode 410 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Camille White and Jasmyn Moore, the hosts of the Distrust & Disparities Podcast.
In the course of their conversation, Keith, Jasmyn, and Camille discuss their powerful podcast which examines current and historical cases of medical injustices within the American healthcare system and how these disparities and injustices have disproportionately impacted Black communities around the country for hundreds of years.
Jasmyn Moore is a registered nurse and health care change maker, who is passionate about dismantling health disparities that disproportionately affect Black women and Black families. She has a wide variety of clinical experience, including community health, emergency & trauma, nursing education, and case management. Working with underserved communities inspired her to create the Distrust & Disparities podcast to provide a voice to those negatively impacted by medical injustices in the American healthcare system. She wants to inspire individuals to advocate for proper healthcare treatment for themselves and educate health professionals on how to check their racial bias.
Camille White is a fierce health advocate and spirited co-host of Distrust & Disparities podcast. She is a Human Resources specialist with a focus on government contracts and minority owned businesses. Her interest in addressing health disparities was sparked after hearing about the countless number of Black women dying in childbirth and the inadequate response to address Black maternal mortality in the US. She wants to fight to bring more attention to this injustice and close the gap on health disparities.
We are two Black women discussing health disparities that disproportionately affect Black women and Black families. We examine current and historical cases of medical injustices within the American healthcare system. And we amplify organizations and individuals working with marginalized communities to improve health outcomes. Tune in every 1st and 3rd Friday to hear how disadvantaged communities navigate a healthcare system not designed for them and the organizations working to close disparity gaps.
