Show Notes

In this episode, host Danlin interviews Aeda Bhagaloo, who works with Professor Anne-Emanuelle Birn at the University of Toronto to research health disparities in breast cancer. We discuss how narrative medicine, a commitment to understanding patients' lives beyond their disease, is crucial for the provision of more compassionate and humanistic health care. We also explore the importance of culturally-sensitive care and how it can improve the health of minority communities to achieve health equity.
