AMERICAN DIAGNOSIS with Dr. Celine Gounder
AMERICAN DIAGNOSIS with Dr. Celine Gounder
The podcast formerly known as IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH. Who gets to be healthy? who doesn’t? and what can we do about it? Money, education, gender, age, race—they all have something to do with it. But we’re talking about the divide between the people who’ll live long and healthy lives and those who won’t. Poor health? It isn’t random. Join Dr. Celine Gounder for fresh angles, deep research, a wide range of voices, and compassionate reporting on how we can heal the nation.
BONUS / Giving Birth While Black / Asha Ivey-Stephenson, Wanda Irving and Abiodun Okon
"This can't continue to go on and if I have to be the one to take up the mantle, then I'll do that because that's what my daughter would have done." -Wanda Irving The United States is the richest country in the world with some of the most advanced medical treatments available anywhere. But you’d never know it if you knew how many mothers die in — and after — childbirth here. The U.S. has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the industrialized world and the rate is staggeringly high for women of color, especially Black women. In this special bonus episode about maternal mortality we’re going to hear firsthand how this trend is affecting Black mothers and learn about one possible solution to this deadly disparity.

BONUS / The Battle for the Affordable Care Act / Jonathan Gruber and Nicholas Bagley
"We used to be a nation where people were one bad gene or one bad traffic accident away from bankruptcy. That's not true anymore." -Jonathan Gruber It's been 10 years since President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law. Some of its most popular provisions included protections for people with pre-existing conditions, allowing children to stay on their family’s health insurance until they turn 26, and expanding prescription drug coverage for Medicare recipients. But the law remains controversial. On Nov. 10, 2020, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the latest constitutional challenge to the law. In this bonus episode of American Diagnosis, we look back at the surprising origins of the Affordable Care Act, see why it’s become so controversial, and what the latest legal challenge to the ACA would mean for the millions of Americans who depend on the law for their health insurance.

BONUS / A Black Man in Science: The Pursuit of Truth / Kafui Dzirasa
“Despite all of those other cues, my white coat, my scrubs, you know, somebody just looked out the window and saw danger. And even the officers who came to talk to me couldn't override their biases that said danger.  And this is not a unique experience at all. I have friends, particularly black men who have trained at some of the best institutions in the country, that not only have these experiences with police, they have these experience with campus police as they're walking around, like going into research labs with their ID badges on. It is like this is a shared experience.”-Kafui Dzirasa, M.D., Ph.D. Today on "Epidemic," we will be hearing a bonus episode from our sister podcast, "American Diagnosis" about some of the issues around race and racism in medicine. In this episode, Dr. Celine Gounder speaks with Dr. Kafui Dzirasa, a psychiatrist and NIH-funded brain researcher at Duke University, about his journey climbing to the heights of biomedical research in the United States as a first-generation immigrant and a black man. We’ll hear how the legacy of slavery continues in science and medicine, Kaf’s advice on finding mentors, and how he’s handling the pandemic as a scientist and an African American.

S3E31 / Gun Violence in America / The Gun Violence Prevention Movement
Many social movements—including civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, and environmental protection—have their origins in the 1960s. In the aftermath of the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK, the NRA joined the American Culture Wars and became the militant gun-rights advocacy organization we know today. But there hasn't been an analogous gun violence prevention movement... at least until now. What changed and why? Guests: Kristin Goss, Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at Duke University and author of Disarmed: The Missing Movement for Gun Control in America; and Scott Melzer, Professor of Sociology at Albion College and author of Gun Crusaders: The NRA’s Culture War. | | | #EndGunViolence #GunViolence #GVP #GunSafety #MentalHealth #MentalIllness #Suicide #HomicideSuicide #FamilyDrama #Family Annihilation #MassShooting #IntimatePartnerViolence #DomesticViolence #EveryTown #MomsDemandAction #MomsDemand #StudentsDemandAction #StudentsDemand #MarchForOurLives #BradyCampaign #FamilyFire #Giffords #ThisIsOurLane #EnoughIsEnough #NeverAgain #NationalEmergency #MedHum #MedHumChat #NarrativeMedicine #HealthHumanities #SocialMedicine #SocialJustice #SDoH
