Show Notes

The famous Walt Whitman quote, "I am large, I contain multitudes," reflects how multi-faceted our identity is. Does our health care system reflect the celebration and acceptance of that diversity? Listen as Dr. Erica Concors shares how they've been able to use community organizing and advocacy skills to create more welcoming medical spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. Providing a safe space for transgender and non-binary people to receive quality and equitable care based on their individual needs defined by their identities, bodies, and circumstances in life allows everyone to be their healthiest.

This season is brought to you in collaboration with American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). This compliments the ABIM Foundation's Building Trust Initiative. We will highlight different stories and context that illustrate racial, ethnic, and gender health disparities. Our goal is to provide this historical context, show how it is connected to inequities that still happen, and share how changemakers are taking action to ensure that history doesn't continue to repeat itself.
