Today we share part two of our amazing conversation with Dr. Keila Lopez, as we explore the reality of COVID-19 in America and how the pandemic has underlined the inequalities that have been present for a long time. Keila's insight and wisdom are truly inspiring and eye-opening. To deepen our understanding of the topics discussed in part one of this series, we delve into more of Keila's philosophy, work history, and views on systemic racism as it pertains to healthcare in the US.
If you have not yet listened to our first episode with Keila, be sure to go back and catch up on that! Today we hear about Keila's thoughts on the vaccine, social determinants of health, and so much more that you are not going to want to miss. We also get into the personal aspects of Keila's life, like her religious views, and the message she has about advocacy for minorities.
Looking back on the last few unstable years in American and global history, it is these kinds of perspectives and conversations that need to see more light. Keila is a staunchly rational and committed scientist, deeply connected to her roots and community, and if ever there was a time that we needed dedication to truth and compassion, it is now. Make sure not to miss this passionate and illuminating conversation with this wonderful guest.
