FRESH Talks: Dream, Disrupt, Delight

Ascend Fellow Dr. Nathan Chomilo, Medical Director at Minnesota’s Medicaid and MinnesotaCares programs, asks: Is the blueprint we are following to reconstruct our healthcare system just? Chomilo suggests we need to stop wallpaper over cracks in our healthcare system, but build equity into the walls.

Birth has the power to heal and transform our economy. In a beloved economy, how we enter the world matters. Connection, cooperation, and care are ethical and economic priorities. Ascend Fellow Leseliey Welch examines what that could look like.

Ascend Fellow Dr. Michelle Sarche explains that “Native people today inherited intergenerational trauma, but are also heirs to intergenerational strength.” She issues a challenge to learn from Indigenous wisdom, find your own call, and do what the moment asks of you.
