Dr. John E. Lewis, Jr., Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Emory University School of Medicine, presented the keynote at the 2022-23 J-SICCC Kick-Off event, exploring the systemic racism fueling the health disparities in our society in a raw, real, and electrifying way. I sat down with Dr. Lewis to continue the conversation. Through his sharing, Dr. Lewis helps us understand our own journeys, what drives us, and how we can improve our healthcare teams and patient interactions. This interview dives deeper into the roots of our disconnections to find the only treatment that will work to make the changes we want to see-empathy and vulnerability. When we are presented with what divides us, it is the work of looking for what connects us, both the good and bad, which makes the difference.
