In this episode we meet Dr. Joyce Trompeta, A Nurse Practitioner (NP) specializing in transplantation, and an Associate Professor in the school of medicine, at the University of California, San Francisco where she conducts outcome research in the department of surgery.
Dr. Trompeta discusses several areas of interest, including her concerns about disparities impacting Asian American, Pacific Islander and Latino populations; her work in Hawaii; how younger Latinos with kidney disease are facing unique challenges relating to immigration; and her travels to Japan, where stigma and cultural beliefs have limited organ transplantation, but where the younger generations are now leading change with a little help from Kumamon, Japan’s most popular bear.
