#diabetes #african american #african americans #peripheral artery disease #News & Politics
A doctor in Central Mississippi has made it his mission to prevent patients from losing their legs and feet to peripheral artery disease and diabetes. Dr. Foluso Fakorede spoke with Anne-Marie Green and Vladimir Duthiers about the diseases' impact on the Black community and the bill introduced in Congress to help reduce the number of amputations.

The Healthcare system in America isn't designed to deliver Healthcare, it's designed to make as much profit as it can.

Black ppl need to get 2nd & 3rd opinions before agreeing to any major treatment or surgeries. We're not valued so we're "practiced" on, misdiagnosed, and/or mistreated cause they don't think we'll have good outcomes or deserve outcomes.

We have to stop using " OF COLOR". We need to say black.

I hate that this country is ok with treating certain people like that and don't care about it.

"Communties of color" is an ambiguous term that actually undermines black people... this particular situation is affecting BLACK people not "OTHERS" .. no other minority was mentioned in this video....

Never take their word for Law.
ALWAYS seek a 2nd and 3rd opinion.. especially if you are African-American

Nothing is about prevention is this country, itโ€™s all about profit. Doctors donโ€™t listen to black patients concerns. Iโ€™ve had to switch doctors several times because the doctors didnโ€™t take me seriously and especially as a woman, they like to say that youโ€™re just being hormonal. Itโ€™s really disgusting.

As someone whoโ€™s worked in surgery for almost two decades...THIS. IS. SAD. AND. DISTURBING.

I noticed this very thing in the VA hospitals over 20 years ago. These men didnt loose limbs from the war, they lost limbs from medical and nutritional neglect.

Even for women to have natural birth is an inconvenience to alot of doctors who only perform Csection because it takes less time.
