Podcast 275: Race and Clinical Equity — a Conversation with Dr. Kimberly Manning

We’ve conducted a set of four interviews with physicians on the topic of race and clinical equity.

The conversations center not so much on their published research, but on the roles that these physicians take in their organizations and, in addition, the stories they tell about their own experiences.

Our first is with Dr. Kimberly Manning, who’s a professor of medicine at Emory.

    The story Dr. Manning shared about how she had to tell her father to lie about his symptoms, “I told his to say he had chest pain, he was diaphoretic (excessive sweating), that he had dyspnea (difficulty breathing) on exertion, none of which he had.” This is what it took for the doctors to listen, take him seriously and ultimately admit him into the hospital and it shows that the doctors who he first talked to passed off his feeling of unsureness. As a student nurse, I see a different patient with a different set of symptoms and experiences each week. The more exposure I can get to things I have not experienced and/or seen yet will educate me on those situations in which I could use if I were to see it again. My professors push on us that we should never assume the patient isn’t feeling the way they say they are and that we should limit our bias as much as we possibly can therefore the exposure to more situations like this allows me to limit my personal bias.
