    Social Justice, Love and Medicine w/Student Doctors Shane Hervey and Kelley Butler

    This week’s episode features a dynamic couple and amazing leaders in advocacy, Student Doctors Shane Hervey and Kelley Butler. Both California natives, Shane is a 3rd year medical student at Oregon Health and Sciences University and Kelly is between her 3rd and 4th year at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. 

    Kelley most recently completed her Masters of Public Health in Health Policy at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health where she lead organizing efforts in juvenile justice reform and prison divestment, presented research on substance use and addiction treatment, completed a fellowship in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, increased civic engagement on campus through the Harvard Votes Campaign and oversaw a workshop series on Imposter Syndrome.

    Shane has dedicated himself to supporting underrepresented minority students pursuing careers in medicine as recipient of the President’s Scholarship and fervent advocate within the OHSU Center for Diversity and Inclusion. On campus, he has served in numerous capacities for the Student National Medical Association, has contributed to advocacy and action around gun violence and is currently participating in research surrounding adolescent suicide.

    We talked about their passion for social justice, how they maintain their relationship while in medical school, their dog Rosa Barks and what they'd do if they had a pet Elephant.

Bringing humanity into medicine

Needed voices which are super substantive for bringing real life voices to how dehumanizing medical professions actually are. Helpful for me, especially as a white male, to hear voices of women of color in this field. Thanks Alicia!

Joe PharmD. ,

Awesome!

This sounds like an awesome pod cast and I’m sure it will help change the way we think and view medicine!
