Diversity Champion and Rare Disease Mom, Yosr Hamza

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 142 Half of the Day She's a Diversity Champion, the Other Half a Rare Disease Mom and Caregiver with Yosr Hamza Yosr Hamza is a lawyer, caregiver, and mom and she joins us to talk about what it's like to be a parent to a child with a rare disease in the Middle East, where rare disease isn't as accepted or normalized.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS How have you navigated having a child with a rare disease and discovered your powerful voice to embrace your child? For an entire year, I didn't share my secret that my son had a rare disease outside of my family. I was my own judge and was scared of anyone judging my capability to work and manage everything. I had to embrace it on my own first before I could grow stronger and move past wanting to hide something that makes me who I am. I now see it from the perspective that if someone can't embrace it, that's on them, not me. I wouldn't be able to embrace my own diversity and be my most authentic self without going through what I have with my child and his journey.  What tools and resources helped you to move through the initial emotions after your child was born? One thing I've learned through my journey is to really feel every feeling. I no longer fight back sadness, when I'm down, when I can't do something. It can take a day or two sometimes, but the importance is recognizing when I need to take a break and take time to care for myself. If you're not okay, you can't care for anyone else. I learned that I don't delegate well, but I eventually learned to recognize who was around me, willing to support me and I prepared ideas of things I was able to delegate. It's also been important for me to keep an open mind and not decide in advance what my journey should look like. Being very career oriented, having a plan for myself, it was difficult to realize that I no longer need to win, but I just have to stay in the race.  As a caregiver, what are your goals for yourself and your child? I hope to have a space for caregivers and children like my son in my region. It's unfortunate that there are no resources and we have to fight for everything. There are no nurseries or schools and it creates a need for support. The help and resources are not here and the government isn't investing in it. I'm being vocal about this to hopefully inspire other parents to speak out. I hope by sharing my story, I can connect with someone who can help me make a change and create a voice for caregivers.  LINKS & RESOURCES MENTIONED Global Genes Patient Advocacy Summit https://globalgenes.org/event/rare-patient-advocacy-summit/ Mejo https://www.mymejo.com/ The Caregiver Lawyer on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thecaregiverlawyer/channel/?hl=en TUNE INTO THE ONCE UPON A GENE PODCAST Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/5Htr9lt5vXGG3ac6enxLQ7 Apple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/once-upon-a-gene/id1485249347 Stitcher https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/once-upon-a-gene Overcast https://overcast.fm/itunes1485249347/once-upon-a-gene CONNECT WITH EFFIE PARKS Website https://effieparks.com/ Twitter https://twitter.com/OnceUponAGene Instagram https://www.instagram.com/onceuponagene.podcast/?hl=en Built Ford Tough Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1877643259173346/ Once Upon a Gene TV https://www.thedisordercollection.com/ -| The Health Equity Podcast Channel is made possible with support from Bayer G4A.

The Podcast by KevinMD: The emerging digital health gap

"The pandemic has demonstrated the value of online platforms, especially in health care – but equitable access has not matched this growth. Sadly, many Americans cannot reap the benefits of connectivity. State and federal funding sources are required to enable digital health equity. Moreover, there should be a focus on measuring/creating standards of care in digital health equity. Public financing and public infrastructure (broadband) will be essential to coordinate organizations and defragmenting care. Now is our moment to create a new and better health care system that emerges from the dark days of COVID-19." Joshua W. Elder is an emergency physician. He shares his story and discusses the KevinMD article, "Digital health equity is an emerging gap in health."

Fempower Health Podcast: Menstrual Health Equity: Why it Matters to Us All

Guests Michela Bedard of PERIOD. and Claire Coder of Aunt Flow discuss important menstrual health issues. With 50% of the population menstruating, it is shocking to see the degree of inequities that still exist. This podcast episode is intended to raise awareness and instill a sense of urgency about menstrual health equity and why having a shared language around “normal” periods is critical. **Thank you to Myovant Sciences for sponsoring this episode.** We cover the following menstrual health issues: Why menstrual health equity is important and why inequity still remains How menstrual health equity differs across race, gender, and socioeconomic statuses The negative societal impact of menstrual health inequity and how equity can positively impact us all The role each of us can play to advance the menstrual health equity movement “In the United States, eight states have passed legislation requiring middle schools and high schools, sometimes elementary schools, to offer free period products in the bathroom, not the nurse's office in the bathroom. And why that matters is if you think about what happens in the bathroom versus the nurse's office. Bathrooms are for natural bodily functions. You go to the nurse's office when you're sick.” - Claire Coder, Aunt Flow “Policy follows culture. We're starting to see culture change. We're starting to see social media deal with menstruation and starting to see more femtech companies pop up. We're seeing Claire's Aunt Flow company be successful. We're seeing hundreds of PERIOD. chapters being formed every year. But the policy implications haven't really caught up yet. They're just starting to.” - Michela Bedard, PERIOD.

See You Now: Mentoring for a More Equitable Future

Think of the countless individuals seeking care daily in our clinics, pharmacies, hospitals, schools, and all manner of health care setting. To best communicate, understand, and build trust, it’s vital that patients see people in the healthcare workforce who look, speak, eat, pray, and live like they do.  Our healthcare workforce is far from diverse, representative of our population, or a reflection of our communities and the people we care for. And that is problematic. This representation pipeline problem takes root early on in our educational settings.  In this episode, we meet nurse anesthetist, founder and CEO of Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program, Wallena Gould, EdD, CRNA, FAAN, whose personal experiences led to a recognition of the scope and root problems that prevent innovation from being impactful or scaled, which led to a body of work that has been applied across healthcare to forge a more equitable future.

The Happy Nurse Podcast: How Discrimination in Healthcare Endangers LGBTQ+ People’s Lives

According to research, there are over 9 million gay people and 1.5 million trans people in America. However, the average healthcare professional in the US receives about 2 hours of LGBTQ+ education only.  It is high time that healthcare providers understand their patients better.  In this episode, we speak with Shannon Whittington, award-winning & certified LGBTQ+ health expert on the importance of inclusion in the workplace and in healthcare. We delve in to what it’s like for LGBTQ+ people to live in a hetero-normative world and how they handle all the prejudices in families, communities, companies, and the healthcare system.  LGBTQ+ people have their own health disparities. It’s time to start learning about them and how healthcare professionals can provide patient-centered care without stigmatization, discrimination, or demoralization.   Discrimination in health care settings endangers LGBTQ+ people’s lives. This is why LGBTQ+ education and affirming LGBTQ+ people and their needs is key to building inclusion. TOPICS WE DISCUSSED INCLUDE: LGBTQ+ have their own disparities (4:29) 28% of trans-people are rejected by healthcare professionals (5:33) LGBTQ+ community being afraid of discrimination (9:02) Legalization of same-sex marriage (9:40) Healthcare professionals give so much of themselves to their patients (10:45) Doing things that fill you up (11:50) Importance of quality sleep (12:00) It’s okay to do nothing (13:10) Celebrate you (15:40) Importance of self-care for healthcare providers (21:20) Being in a constant state of learning (26:00) Never stop learning (27:07) Big, audacious goal (28:40) Nurses’ mental health is suffering (30:00) Being client and patient-centered (32:14) Nurses are burning out (33:05) It is normal to be scared of the unknown (35:52) The importance of hydration (37:10) Non-binary people (39:00) Pronouns are so important (39:40) Caring for the LGBTQ+ community (41:52) Normalizing pronouns (40:19) No right or wrong answer when choosing your pronouns (42:59) CONNECT WITH SHANNON WHITTINGTON whittingtonconsulting.com Connect with Shannon on LinkedIn Subscribe to Shannon’s YouTube Channel CONNECT WITH ELAINA MULLERY HappyNurse.com.au Connect with me on Instagram and Facebook Connect with me on LinkedIn Subscribe to my Youtube channel -| The Health Equity Podcast Channel is made possible with support from Bayer G4A.

See You Now: Black Midwives & Mamas Matter

The CDC reports that Black mothers die at three to four times the rate of white mothers and that the mortality rate of Black infants is higher than that of any other ethnic group in the U.S. Regardless of income and education level, childbirth for Black women is more dangerous than it is for white women. Even tennis legend Serena Williams had a dangerously close call during her pregnancy. In examining why these disparities are so stark, it is clear that structural and systemic racism, racialized health inequities, and implicit bias not only play a role but also signify areas within our society that desperately need improvement. In this episode, we hear from three healthcare innovators who personally and professionally—as Black women and advisors to the Black Mamas Matter Alliance—work tirelessly to advance policy grounded in human rights and reproductive justice to improve Black maternal health and lives. Tune in to hear Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM, RM, Founder and Executive Director of Commonsense Childbirth and Founder of the National Perinatal Task Force; Joia Crear-Perry, MD, Founder and President of the National Birth Equity Collaborative; and Monica McLemore, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, Tenured Associate Professor at the University of California, San Francisco and member of the Bixby Center of Global Reproductive Health, share their wisdom, outrage, approach, and perspectives on the causes and solutions to Black maternal health disparities in the United States.

Amplify Nursing: How the pandemic, racial unrest, and health inequity affects the most vulnerable patients with Mari-Carmen Farmer

Mari-Carmen Farmer is a nurse midwife and social justice advocate who knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a nurse. That calling was solidified while working beside nurses caring for her daughter who was born with a genetic anomaly. Currently, she works in a community practice in Philadelphia which serves immigrant communities, patients who are underinsured, and women of color. We talk with her about her path to, and tangible passion for, midwifery, the joy that it brings her, and how the confluence of the pandemic, racial unrest, and health inequity affects the care for her most vulnerable patients. ------ This episode originally aired on Amplify Nursing on May 6, 2021.
