Writing Your Own Prescription For Your Life w/ Dr Richard Harris
Dr. Richard Harris is someone who believes that knowledge is never wasted. After realizing during his 1st year of pharmacy school that he really wanted to do medicine, he decided to stick out, finish pharmacy school, and then apply to medical school. He learned early in life that it's better to be overprepared.  During his journey in medicine, he realized that he himself was at a high risk for several health conditions due to his family history. When combined with the fact that most of the chronic diseases that he was treating in his patients are largely preventable, he made the switch to the more holistic approach of functional medicine. He also decided that he needed to be an entrepreneur, because he really wanted to make a difference. Hear Dr. Loteh and Dr. Bolu interview Dr. Harris to discuss his journey, his experience treating COVID-19 patients, his mindset, and an explanation of functional medicine & epigenetics.

Moving Forward: Re-assessing & Re-imagining Black Culture
So often, Black people idealize Black culture. We have certainly achieved remarkable heights in many different areas, but in many other areas we have been held back by oppression and systemic racism. However, with the current environment, now is the perfect time to hold Black culture up to a mirror. If we can imagine a world where systemic racism is a thing of the past, we can also imagine a world where black culture isn't limited by the confines of white expectation. So much of Black culture came from negative, oppressive situations, where we had to make the best out of things. But what would it look like to re-imagine the culture?
