Join Andrew Tisser with Doctors Chase Anderson and Carl Streed Jr. as they talk about being yourself in medicine. They get into the systematic discrimination that people of color and different sexual identities get in the medical field. Chase and Carl also share what we can do to improve how we deal with these issues and support our words with actions.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The privileges and friction brought about by intersectionality and identifying with the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Using strong emotions as a catalyst for change.
  • Asking consent before asking questions or bringing up topics that people might have problems with.
  • Being a lifelong learner. You have the power as a health professional to speak up and make a difference.
  • Changing behavior and conduct instead of forcing a change of beliefs.
