This week, I sat down with Dr. Bowen Chung, a psychiatrist at UCLA Harborview Medical Center to discuss psychiatric science, health disparities research, socioeconomic status and their intersections with mental health for people of color (specifically African American and Latinx underserved communities).

Just a note:  The video produced for this episode did not do Dr. Chung justice so when I received it, I decided it was best to not include it.  This will be my only episode this season to not have both audio and video and I apologize to my audience for this.

Dr. Chung and I have known each other for over 15 years and we met just after we'd both completed training and were starting out as brand new researchers with a passion for justice in the mental health space.  Dr. Chung has treated many children, adolescents and families over the years and still funds time to conduct research to both understand and eradicate mental health disparities in access to care and in the quality of care received.

So you can probably guess why he was a wonderful guest for me to have on the show.  Pardon me as I dive into my nerdy self for a bit :).  I really hope you enjoy the show and check out Dr. Chung's research here.
