Children of Color Typically Receive Worse Healthcare. What Factors Influence this Fact?
21 plays

morningamp:

"When people were asking for pain medications overall 27% of white children recieved pain meds, while only 15.8% of black children, 18.9 of latinos, and 7% of kids of other races […] If you’re Asian in the ER watch out." - Molly Adams

Looking at a study published in the October issue of Pediatrics, Molly Adams, Brian Babylon, and Coya Paz ask whether statistics about disparate care received by minors in the ER for stomach pain pointed to racist hospital practices or to disparities between hospitals in low-income areas and how families from different economic backgrounds might ask for more.

The Fancy Millionaire Rich Guy Club: Marketing Edition
23 plays

morningamp:

Ever spent $800 for a plain white t-Shirt? $50 for a pack of radiant tampons? What about $200 for a pack of ice cubes? We haven’t either, but we are for certain that people spend that kind of money on luxury items every day. On this morning’s special edition of “The Fancy Millionaire Rich Guy’s Club”, the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams took the time to dissect into the marketing strategy behind uber-luxury companies and the effect of branding an item. Clearly, we are aware that these luxury every-day items does not necessarily mean that they’re “better quality” than affordable generic brands - so why is there still a demand for these items? Well, whether it’s for show, or to reassure our minds that these products are worth the price tag, one thing is for certain: the branding of any item, no matter how basic or petty, is powerful.
