    Episode 99: Covid and Older Adults

    With COVID-19 putting unprecedented stress on our already overburdened systems of support for older people, the need to provide for the mental and physical health of this population has reached a critical level. On this episode of the podcast, we are joined for the second time by licensed clinical social worker Carly Bassett, who specializes in mental health care for older adults.

    Episode 98: COVID-19 and Children's Mental Health

    Episode 98: COVID-19 and Children's Mental Health

    May is Children’s Mental Health Month. Today we are talking about COVID-19 and its effect on children, youth, and families. In the state of Texas, schools have been shut down since mid-March. Millions of children and adolescents have been sheltering at home. Just as much as kids have never needed more attention, parents have never needed more of a break. On top of that, we have good reason to believe that home is necessarily the safest place for kids.

    To help make sense of it all, we are joined by a pair of Austin-based experts who come at this from the perspectives of both healthcare professionals and parents. Dr. Allison Hall is a pediatric physical therapist and the CEO/founder of My Kid Blooms, a digital resource for parents to find pediatric and OB/GYN health-related information and professionals that match the needs of their families. Dr. Nakia Scott is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and the owner of Holistic Mental Health.

    Episode 97: The Inequality of COVID-19

    Episode 97: The Inequality of COVID-19

    It is fashionable to say that coronavirus doesn't discriminate, but this may be misleading. In fact, there is compelling data suggesting that the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting some communities harder than others. A new study conducted by epidemiologists and clinician-researchers from six organizations and universities across the country found that counties with high rates of African American residents comprised 52 percent of all diagnoses and 58 percent of all COVID-19 deaths nationally. According to an analysis by American Public Media Research, blacks, despite making up about 13% of the US population according to the Census Bureau, are 27% of known COVID-19 deaths. In state after state, there is evidence that this pandemic is having a disproportionate effect on people of color, on the economically precarious, and on already stigmatized populations such as the homeless.

    These findings may just be the tip of the iceberg. In this episode, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro of San Antonio, representing Texas's 20th congressional district, and Dr. Octavio N. Martinez, Jr., executive director of the Hogg Foundation, join us from their respective worlds of politics and philanthropy to discuss the deep social implications of coronavirus through a health equity lens.

    COVID-19 is the world’s biggest story. It is seriously trying people’s emotional, financial, and even spiritual ability to cope.
