This podcast explores in what ways we can elevate ourselves as individuals and in our communities so that we can achieve universal liberation from the systems in place that attempt to restrict us.

On this episode we have Dr. Courtney S White talk about her experiences as a black queer woman in a space where she has constantly been challenged. She talks about her work for other individuals in the LGBTQIA + community and how she continues to be a transparent advocate and force in academia. As an associate clerkship director in neurology, she keeps it real about why its important to not conform and continue to live in your truth. From her struggles with mental health to personal dealing of being diagnosed with migraine, it's all about keeping it a stack! We break down how to maintain your confidence as a medical student & resident even when you receive less than stellar evaluation especially when it may be  allegedely discriminatory in nature. We also navigate disparities in headache medicine and how it is one of the most common disabilities in the world and MORE!
