This week, I spoke to Dr. Raven Baxter about the effects of “long COVID” and the power she discovered from her own personal journey with the illness. In “Our Body Politic Presents…” Tonya Mosley of the podcast “Truth Be Told” interviewed her mother and parenting coach Yolanda Williams about the joys and challenges of raising free and healthy Black children in today’s world. On our weekly segment Sippin’ the Political Tea, I spoke with former Obama White House Health Policy Director Dr. Kavita Patel and psychiatrist and activist Dr. Kali Cyrus about mental health and equity in healthcare when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic.
