Show Notes

In this episode, co-hosts Danlin and Hajar discuss the rise of virtual healthcare amid the COVID-19 pandemic and what it means for patients in the future. We explain the advantages and disadvantages of telehealth replacing in-person care, especially for taboo health problems such as sexual and mental health. Also, we discuss how telehealth exacerbates current health disparities due to gaps in Internet access and the lack of accommodation on the virtual interface for patients with disabilities.
