Medical Hesitancy within the African American Community and End of Life Care with Vernon Nickerson
End of Life – Medical Hesitancy within the African American Community and End of Life Care
African Americans have a historical distrust of the medical community which has an impact on end-of-life care.
They also have rich spiritual connections that have built a strong sense of community as they historically took care of their own during times of loss. How does this translate to the current reality of death and dying in the African American community?
Listen to counselor and educator Vernon Nickerson passionately share the history and experience from an African American POV that can be learning lessons for us all.
