Trust: Willing to be Vulnerable. Worth the Investment.

By Advocate, Researcher, ePatient, Clinician, Leader, Informaticist, Family man, Podcasts One Comment

Best health builds on trust – trust in people, institutions, information, and solutions. I trust my primary care doc.  I trust my chiropractor. I trust my instincts. I trust my gut. I do. I trust my wife. She trusts me. Trust doesn’t mean blind following. Rather trust leads to more control or feeling more in control. I need trust when I’m in a crisis and can’t think clearly. I listen to my immediate family and my two lead docs (in that order). I’m likely to do what they recommend. Trust is for when I need to decide but can’t or don’t want to. Trust is for times of uncertainty.

State of Inclusion. Ame Sanders, Equity Warrior

By Advocate, ePatient, Consumer No Comments

It’s everywhere, it’s everywhere. I can’t help but see almost everything I do in my advocacy through the lens of health equity.  Whether it’s making decisions about our health and medical care, managing pain, young adults with complex medical issues transitioning from pediatric to adult medicine, men in caregiving, data sharing, patient access to data. Everywhere. I’m defining equity as people having the same opportunity to achieve best physical, mental and spiritual health no matter their social circumstances, biology, genetics, or physical environment. I wanted to take a look at bias, inclusion and equity from outside healthcare. So, I interviewed Ame Sanders and we talked about our own biases, inclusion or lack thereof in our communities, measuring bias, and taking action to reduce inequities.

Ame Sanders and I met at Seth Godin’s Podcasting Fellowship, 350 or so people from around the world learning to be podcasters. Ame caught my eye with her podcast, Equity Warriors, and her company www.stateofinclusion.com. See the show notes for further information. We decided to interview each other. You can hear Ame’s interview of me at the link above. Being a practical person, I look for what works and what we can learn from other people’s experiences.  While Ame doesn’t work in the health care space, she has much to teach us about the state of inclusion in communities.
