    The Battle Over Reproductive Rights with Dr. Shieva Ghofrany

    The Battle Over Reproductive Rights with Dr. Shieva Ghofrany

    For women, the stakes don’t get any higher than the fight over reproductive rights.

    Power, control, and autonomy are clashing head-on in the United States —in real-time— as we live through a contentious battle where, quite frankly, lives are at risk and freedoms are in question.

    The Think Tank of Three welcomes Dr. Shieva Ghofrany, a prominent OBGYN from Stamford, Connecticut to weigh in on the health implications for women, based on her expert perspective and personal experience.

    Julie Holton and Reischea Canidate-Kapasouris navigate this sensitive terrain, shedding light on how political decisions are affecting women's battle for bodily autonomy. We also talk about the "trad wife" phenomenon, delve into biblical interpretations of women’s roles, and discuss the alarming shifts in laws governing women’s health decisions across various states.

    It’s about understanding the stakes, empowering women to make informed decisions, and recognizing the voices that are often silenced in mainstream debates. Dr. Ghofrany’s insights, coupled with her personal experiences in both the medical and patient spheres, make this episode a crucial listen for anyone committed to understanding and advocating for women’s rights in today’s landscape.

    Breaking Barriers in Healthcare Equity with Dr. Renee Branch Canady

    Is your zip code a better predictor of healthcare outcomes than your genetic code?

    We invite you to sit with Reischea and Julie in the discomfort of a critical yet challenging and complex conversation exploring healthcare disparities.

    Our guide through this exploration is Dr. Renee Branch Canady, CEO of Michigan Public Health Institute, a visionary in the field of public health and author of “Room at the Table: A Leader’s Guide to Advancing Health Equity and Justice.” 

    Dr. Canady brings to the table not just her professional insights but also a wealth of personal stories that illuminate the path from acknowledging healthcare inequities to actively addressing them.

    This episode looks at a few threads of history, from the lingering shadows of the Tuskegee trials to present-day battles for inclusive health practices. We talk about the policies that shape our health system, dissect societal attitudes toward healthcare, and share a few personal narratives that put a human face on the statistics.

    All to answer: what does it truly mean to have equitable healthcare? 

    Through Dr. Canady's eyes, we see not just the barriers, but the breakthroughs—how communities are innovating, how policies are evolving, and how individuals are advocating for change.
