Join us for the March installment of the Confronting Flexner Speaker Series! This month, we will hear from Tracy R. Wilson, DNP, MSN.Ed., RN, FNP-C, who will deliver the talk "Medical Gaslighting: Why Don't You Hear Me?" Dr. Wilson says this about the talk: "This topic is near and dear to me. My experience with medical gaslighting is no different than anyone else and I am a healthcare provider. Women, people of color, marginalized communities, elderly are among the groups that may experience being gaslit. This discussion will hopefully engage the audience with an understanding of the term, its prevalence and ways we can overcome this issue that has been present for a long time. So advocate for yourself and make yourself heard because your very life may depend on it." We are looking forward to learning and discussing more about this topic!
