We can’t get our hospital to engage either. Even when we don’t bring up race but just overall care they refuse to sit down. I would love to see some more training around how to get the hospital to engage.

How can others of us around the country support you Asteir in dealing with these hospitals? Is there a way that we can show up-physically or otherwise-to help with the push back you need? BMMA, how can we help with this? I’m thinking of strength in numbers. Should we look at advocacy? Policy?
