What parts of your identity do you wish were more represented in health care?
Our Mighty editorial staff talks a lot about how, in general, health care isn’t very nuanced. For example, there are specialists who are neurologists, but there aren’t as many neurologists who primarily treat in Latinx patients. Another example would be a trauma-informed therapist who has PTSD themselves.
A lot of the time, those nuances are what would make medical care so much more personalized, safe, and effective.
So we open the floor: What parts of your identity do you wish were more represented in health care? Race? Gender? Lifestyle? Sexual preference? Age? Religion?
📣 P.S. If you’ve had a really amazing experience with a medical professional, medical facility, or support group who specialized in or represented a specific intersection, we’d love to hear about it!
