The first event for Leg 2 for Walk USA for Health Equity was nothing short of spectacular! I just wish you could have been here to witness Dr. Deborah Langheld, ND, doing her thing demonstrating some of her ways of helping people to heal and optimize their health. I have never seen anything like it. We have to get Tennessee licensed for Naturopathic Medicine. Although it was a very long day of setting up,
for what the people participating learned, it was well worth it!
I had the time and opportunity to explain to many of the participants exactly what Health Equity is, in a very non-threatening, empowering way. Health equity is not just about helping “the poor,” but about overcoming: discrimination, implicit and explicit biases which we all have, structural isms that prevent all Americans from getting optimal health care. It is about social justice. It’s about 2 people with the same insurance policy with the same disease getting the same equal treatment. Once explained, Americans get it and support health equity. That’s what is especially encouraging.
I love being out here. Thank you so much for your support and spreading the news of the walk. WalkUSAforHealthEquity.org.
