MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.

This week on MD for Moms, I interview Emergency Medicine physician Dr. Nicole Battaglioli about life in the ER in the age of COVID19 as well as about unconscious bias in medicine. COVID19 has been around for only a few short months and in that time it has turned our lives upside down. Dr. Battaglioli shares the most up to date information about COVID19 from an ER physician’s perspective and explains when to go to the ER and when to stay home. 

Unconscious bias is everywhere – we inherently have some degree of bias and this informs our actions. One goal for everyone is to identify these biases and actively work to counter them. Medicine is not immune to the impact of unconscious bias – be it in the form of racism, sexism, or ageism among others. Dr. Battaglioli explores how bias impacts medical care from the standpoint of the physician and the patient, and how we can all be better. We also discuss Imposter Syndrome and other issues that can negatively impact one’s trajectory to success. 

Have a question for Dr. Nicole Battaglioli about COVID19 and unconscious bias in medicine?
