Fighting For Our Lives
Jan 27, 2021 Season 2 Episode 222
Sasha & Shara

Did you know that doctors listen to their patients for an average of just 11 seconds before interrupting them? If you were dealing with pain or an ailment for weeks, is 11 seconds enough time to explain your symptoms and express your concerns?⁠ Of course not!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In this week's episode, we're tackling the important issue of advocating for yourself and your health. We get it...standing up to doctors or other medical professionals can sometimes be intimidating. But there is no one that cares more about your health than you do so we've found some techniques to help make sure you're being heard.

Episode Resources:

Doctors Interrupt Patients, Stop Listening After 11 Seconds On Average, Study Says

Racism, Inequality, and Health Care for African Americans

The U.S. finally has better maternal mortality data. Black mothers still fare the worst.
