From frustration over the spread of medical misinformation about COVID-19 to racial inequities in our healthcare system, this week’s guest Dr. Danielle Belardo and host D address some important conversations happening in the medical community. Dr. Belardo (@daniellebelardomd) is a Cardiology Fellow and Director of Cardiology at the Insititute of Plant-Based Medicine. She is a go-to when it comes to the benefits of plant-based nutrition for cardiovascular health. In today’s episode, Dr. Belardo and D chat about how pandemic panic has led to the sharing of poorly-sourced information, how to make realistic changes towards plant-based diets, and how they’re trying to shift their own thinking when it comes to race and supporting anti-racist initiatives. Dr. Belardo shares her insights on what needs to be done to increase the number of women in cardiology and discusses her love for nurses as well as her gripes about sexism in med school.
