    Choosing Hope with Dr. Josh Walters

    Choosing Hope with Dr. Josh Walters

    In this episode, Jared is once again joined by his good friend, Dr. Joshua Walters, PT, DPT, USAW-L1. The two reflect on the current events & civil rights protests and share their experiences. They discuss American history, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement, what it's like to be a Black healthcare provider in America, Trump, Monopoly, Greg Glassman, microaggressions, and the power of having one-on-one conversations.

    Hope is a choice. 

    Josh's challenge for you: Write out a list of questions including things you don’t quite understand about what’s going on right now. Try and find someone that looks like you to answer those question and then go find someone that doesn’t look like you to answer those same questions. Purposefully put yourself in a conversation that is uncomfortable. Lean into it & see what you can glean from that conversation.

    Growth comes from discomfort. If you really want to make a change and see progress, you have to get uncomfortable first. That sounds a lot like progressive loading! - Thanks for listening, friends!

    Sex-Positivity & addressing Racism in Healthcare with Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai

    Sex-Positivity & addressing Racism in Healthcare with Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai

    What's up listeners! This week we talk to the legendary, Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai!! She shares her story of what sparked her interest in pelvic health. Dr. UC also discusses the importance of being comfortable with sexuality and the pelvic floor. We learn about the history of racism and oppression in healthcare and how this can affect how a provider addresses an individual's unique experience of pain.

    "These conversations recognizing advantages and disadvantages & how systems of oppression can influence one's experience of pain can be exhausting, however, it is important and requires internal work that isn't sexy, nor is tangible."

    Dr. Uchenna “UC” Ossai is a sex-positive pelvic health physical therapist and sexuality educator and counselor. Dr. UC is an assistant professor at the University of Texas Dell Medical School and also serves as the pelvic health program manager at UT Health Austin. She is on faculty for the University of Michigan, School of Social Work’s Sexual Health Certification Program. Dr. UC is one of few licensed physical therapists in the world with an AASECT certification in sexuality counseling; as well as the only Black physical therapist with this specific designation. She is also the founder of YouSeeLogic, an online platform that focuses on improving the sexual intelligence of ALL adults through innovative content and honest discussion that is free of judgment. 

    Thank you for listening. Check out Dr. UC's new online course: Intersections of Racism and Power: Healthcare Redefined. https://youseelogic.com/shop/Intersections-of-Racism-and-Power-Healthcare-Redefined-p211991311
