Episode 5: Diversity, Part 3 [Robert Burns]

Waves’ diversity series continues with a conversation with Dr. Robert Burns, owner of Novi DPT. He talks about disparities in healthcare outcomes among minorities and how PTs can be better prepared to close that gap, including learning about and appreciating the diversity in our patient population and how it relates to patient/therapist interactions.

He also talks about “myth of cultural competency” and challenges physical therapists to do more to serve the underserved.
