DR KALI HOBSON on Mental Health & Racial Disparity in US Health Care
Apr 20th, 2020 by courtsidetheory
In this episode we chat with Dr Kali Hobson who is the first black woman child and adolescent psychiatrist in the state of Oregon.
She educates us on common misconceptions about mental health, methods in which to help avoid depression while physically distancing (00:14:38), the disparities in the American health care system when it comes to the black community (00:21:07), and what it's like practicing as a black woman with tattoos in the United States (1:02:37).
We also randomly chat about the Walking Dead and the Backstreet Boys.
