Laurie McGraw is speaking with Inspiring Woman Dr. Bayo Curry-Winchell, known to many as just Dr. BCW.  She is the creator of Beyond Clinical Walls, a popular video series where Dr. BCW discusses a wide variety of health topics.   Her intention is to create awareness and advocate for patients while also infusing health equity into the series.  Advocacy and standing up for people has been important to Dr. BCW since she was a little girl.  Her why comes from her father who would bring her to rallies and have her hold signs.  She may not have understood the issues at the time, but she learned that it was important to speak out.

Today, Dr. BCW is sharing medical information in helpful and disarming ways to help build trust which is often lacking.  Topics range from complex diagnoses, uncomfortable medical terms, and consistently, teaching patients how to advocate for themselves.  Bias is pervasive in healthcare.  Breaking through those barriers includes telling real patient stories to get beyond the statistics.  This includes sharing her own story of nearly losing her life after the birth of her second child.   Knowing something was wrong, asking for help, and not being heard.

We have a long way to go to break through bias in healthcare.  Dr. BCW aims to educate, to share medical information, and to tell real patient stories.  And if she can reach one patient, break down one barrier, that is what she is after.  Her purpose is to save lives.
