Guest: Imani Barbarin, disabilities advocate
Imani Barbarin (crutches and spice) joins Auntie Vice to talk about disabilities, representation, the American and French healthcare systems, SSDI, COVID and finding joy!
She spends time discussing racism, sexism, fatphobia, and gaslighting by doctors. We delve into how this impacts patient’s health and long-term outcomes. For every doctor who has ever treated a fat, Black, or disabled person, hear what we actually experience at your hands.
With COVID now looking like it will be a mass disabling event, she discusses how the Social Security System is on the verge of collapse and how more than 10,000 people a year die while waiting for paperwork to be processed.
