Summer Series Ep4: Demystifying the Opioid Epidemic with Dr. Paula Lum and Dr. Triveni DeFries

EFor our last episode of our Summer Series, we are talking with Dr. Paula Lum and Dr. Triveni DeFries, both physician activists of the UCSF Primary Care Addiction Medicine Fellowship. In this episode, we talk more about the historical and racial roots of the socially constructed phenomena of “the opioid epidemic”. In addition, we talk about how structural and social determinants have affected historical and current drug epidemics, including the rising methamphetamine epidemic going on now. We most importantly talk about how health professionals must de-stigmatize the culture of shame around drug use both in patient care and within our institutions through our words, actions, and activism. We also talk about how to expand resources in our hospitals and communities in order to address drug epidemics and their associated stigma and shame for people affected. We hope this episode serves as a call to action for many people to address personal and institutional biases about people and communities affected by the rise of current drug epidemics. Most of all, we hope this episode brings compassion and humanity to these very real issues of our communities. Also check out our brotha Max’s podcast “Flip the Script” episodes “Opioids in Black and White” Pt. 1 and 2 for further context on the current opioid epidemic! https://soundcloud.com/yaleuniversity/opioids-in-black-and-white-pt-ii-imani?in=yaleuniversity/sets/flip-the-script Bios: Paula J.

Summer Series Ep2: U.S. Immigration Border Crisis with Dr. Eleanor Chung

ESpotlight on the U.S. immigration border crisis has significantly increased in large part due to the hateful rhetoric of the Trump administration and global xenophobic sentiments. However, these issues have always existed. Our communities are standing strong in the fight for justice. In this episode, we’re talking with Dr. Eleanor Chung, a pediatrician at UCSF who started the Bridges Clinic, which provides health services for refugees, asylees, and victims of trafficking at San Francisco General Hospital. We talk more about how medicine intersects with the continuing fight for immigrant health and justice, especially with recent media coverage on horrific events occurring at the border. We briefly touch on why it is important to understand the deeply rooted history of the current immigration crisis and why collaborative, interdisciplinary wrap-around care is essential to address the needs of immigrant communities today. We hope this episode serves as an urgent call for justice, service, and love to all communities affected by these ongoing crises. We are fighting alongside you.
