Women & The Broken Healthcare System

Women & The Broken Healthcare System

Fixing it Together

Navigating the healthcare system as a woman can be an uphill battle, with symptoms frequently dismissed, misdiagnosed, or attributed to psychological causes. In this eye-opening episode, you'll learn how to advocate for yourself and receive the quality care you deserve despite the systemic gender biases that persist in medicine.

Discover why women face higher rates of misdiagnosis and unexplained symptoms, and gain invaluable strategies for effectively communicating your concerns to healthcare providers. From understanding your rights as a patient to asking the right questions, you'll be equipped with the knowledge and tools to overcome marginalization and ensure your voice is heard. Prepare to feel empowered to take control of your healthcare journey as you learn to navigate a system that has historically sidelined women's needs. Gain the confidence to demand the comprehensive, unbiased treatment you deserve.

In this episode, listeners will gain invaluable insights from writer and researcher Susan Salenger, author of "Sidelined," who joins us to share her findings and advice.
