The founders of Marjorie's Fund (MFund) join us to talk about accessible care. Resource-poor community don't have the same level of access to care as wealthier communities, and MFund addresses that disparity.
If you do not have accessible care, this episode may help you learn more about what you can do about that, even if you live in the U.S.
Meet Jason Baker & Sandy Narayanan
Jason C. Baker, MD, is Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine and Attending Endocrinologist at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York. Dr. Baker completed a fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York.
Sandy has type 2 diabetes. Growing up in India, Sandy early on was struck by the severe disparities in health and diabetes care. She was moved by the devastation caused by poverty and a lack of diabetes education, testing and treatment supplies. Sandy applied this deep connection to diabetes in making a career change and is now a Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietitian.
You can connect with Jason and Sandy at Marjorie's Fund.
