Latest Podcast Sipping Tea on TDoR—Ft. Tee Fansofa ('Escape From Plan A' Ep. 224)

Asian Americans experience a COVID fatality rate at least 3 times the national average in cities where we make up more than 5% of the population. Xiaoyun and Sarah, who both work in healthcare, join You Peng and Diana to discuss the often unreported healthcare disparities of COVID impact on Asian American communities. We share how we've personally experienced the multifaceted ways in which racism and sinophobia in science and medicine erase and kill Asian Americans--and give lots of practical advice on how to advocate for ourselves as patients. Always get a second opinion and if necessary, ask for a different provider. Hospitals are like any other capitalist business, and that means patients are customers. We have more leverage than we often realize.
