Check it out! My first radio debut. I talk with Dave Lindorff about healthcare for incarcerated persons, hepatitis C, and Mumia Abu-Jamal. It springboards off the three part TCBH! series on Mumia Abu-Jamal's case and its implications for prison health across the country.
I'm not sure how many times I personally said the word horrible/horrific. I'm looking up synonyms for it and practicing it in my vocabulary as we speak.
Hey folks! So my first article a member of the ThisCantBeHappening! collective has been posted! I'm hoping to post another version with some more in depth technical analysis, but the one that's posted is for the general public.
What I've been reading:
The Autobiography of My Mother

about this blog
A place where I can write my thoughts on race, on privilege, on class, on being a doctor. Part of the endless struggle to become a little bit more enlightened and feel a little less alienated.
Agree with me. Call me out. Pass it on.
I post once or twice a month with smaller comments on mini-blog.
My name is Jess. In the interest of full disclosure: I'm a 30-something-year-old Chinese American and believer that the quest for social justice and equity must be an intentional and active one. I'm a Family Medicine physician. I'm queer. I'm a radical. I grew up in a mostly white suburb and my parents are white-collar workers. And I don't eat meat, but I miss it sometimes.
