120: Interview: Bias in Healthcare with Patient and Practitioner Kimether Redmon

Today I’m speaking with Kimether Redmon about:

-Trauma-informed medical care.

-Some biases a person may face in the medical setting.

-Personal biases that Kimether has faced.

Who is Kimether Redmon?

She is an endometriosis patient as well as a Family Nurse Practitioner serving low-income uninsured patients in her area. Before her nursing career, she was a research consultant with a background in brain injury research, and employment.

Being diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis in 2021 after over 20 years of countless incidents of dismissal, gaslighting, bias, and incompetency has fueled her own diligence as a healthcare provider and educator that prioritizes high quality, trauma informed care to all.

Kimether is also the vice president of Peach Corps, which is on a mission to help those with PCOS, Endo, Adeno and chronic conditions.
