Dr. Onye Nnorom

Welcome to Season 2 of the “Race, Health & Happiness” podcast: GAME CHANGERS.

In this episode, I interview my girl and colleague Dr. Marcia Anderson – Indigenous woman, mother, physician, advocate, scholar, FEMME and just PURE FIYA!!

We dive into the impacts of colonization and her own experiences of anti-Indigenous racism in healthcare. Although this was recorded before the tragic unearthing of Indigenous children’s remains in Kamloops BC, the approaches to healing she describes here can be applied to overcoming almost any form of racial trauma. So I hope it is helpful to everyone directly and indirectly affected by this act of structural violence.

And stay tuned in the coming days– we will be releasing a bonus episode that we recorded together, where we do a deep dive into “radical self-care”. 

So buckle up, here we go!
