In a very special celebration of Black History Month, we would like to not only recognize Dr. Aerik Williams, but to also celebrate him and his successes.
Dr. Williams has been with Allergy Partners since 2014. He joined Statesville, NC on 8/15/14 and went solo in Salisbury 1/1/2016. Since then, he has been repeatedly complimented by his staff and patients on his caring personality and professionalism.
In this very special podcast, Dr. Williams covers a wide range of topics from his memoirs, Aerik’s Anatomy, including:
• His personal experiences dealing with racism and stereotypes throughout his life
• Challenges in our healthcare system that are negatively impacting people of color
• His journey to achieve his lifelong goal to become a physician like his father
Mental illness; racism and racial slurs; suicide; miscarriage.
With the recent approval of a vaccine against COVID, concerns have been raised regarding it’s safety in allergic individuals. We know there is a lot of information and varied perspectives related to the COVID-19 vaccine. The Allergy Partners clinical team has reviewed information from trusted sources like the CDC, FDA, Johns Hopkins, etc. related to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and we feel confident in their findings and safety protocols. As with any medical procedure, we encourage you do your own research to help make the best decision for you and your family.
Join our host Chilka Rawal and guest, Dr. Ananth Thyagarajan, as they discuss where the concerns in regards to the COVID-19 vaccine allergies stem from and how to decide whether to get vaccinated.
