Listen to the First Episode of Quantum Narratives, our Medical and Health Humanities Podcast

The Quantum Narratives podcast aims to shed light on the “medicine” that emerges out of creativity and stories to thwart implicit biases that contribute to healthcare disparities as a result of structural inequalities and racism. Hosted by Nakaweesi Katongole and Merel Visse. Produced and sponsored by the Medical and Health Humanities Program at Drew University.

In this inaugural episode, Nakaweesi and Merel talk with their Drew colleague Kenneth Ngwa, director Global Health and Religion Forum, a partner of the Medical and Health Humanities Program. The conversation flows toward taking the community as a baseline.
