A powerful, must-read essay written by Dr. Olayiwola, published in Annals of Family Medicine Journal.

ABSTRACT
Medicine has historically been a field where the provider of the service (physician, nurse) has a significant amount of power as compared with the recipient of the service (the patient). For the most part, this power is relatively consistent, and the power dynamic is rarely disrupted. In this essay, I share a personal experience
in which a racist rant by a patient seemingly reverses the power dynamic.  Read the full essay here.
