Every week on Take Back Our Schools we tackle the culture of illiberalism that has permeated our education system. With teachers and administrators now involving themselves with medical decisions and parents’ rights to control the care students get, this week we speak with physician and healthcare policy advocate Carrie Mendoza, MD.
Dr. Mendoza discusses how the culture has changed our medical system, especially after the events of 2020. She also explains how the “administrative state” within the healthcare system has worked to diminish the voices of doctors in favor of bureaucrats, beginning with the rise of Medicare and Medicaid and accelerated after the adoption of Obamacare. Mendoza shares her views on why so many doctors are fearful to speak up, especially on controversial issues such as gender dysphoria and transitioning children and also issues a warning on how lowering standards for medical schools will significantly impact medical care in the future.
Carrie Mendoza has spend over 20 years practicing emergency medicine in rural, suburban, and urban hospitals treating snakebites to gun shot wounds to 1000s of Covid-19 patients. She is a medical technology inventor with two patents for an Emergency Department communications app. The doctor is also a healthcare policy advocate and social entrepreneur with the non-profit The Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism (FAIR) where she is the Director of FAIR in Medicine.
