Your Healthcare Scoop
Hey! My name is Sydney Cooper. I started my career in healthcare at THE Howard University, where I studied healthcare administration. It was there that I developed a passion for the health of people of color. I became aware of the multitude of factors that affect minorities in and outside of the hospital setting.
After going to an HBCU for 4 years, (where every conversation was centered around people of color) I transitioned to an environment with a completely different demographic. I went from the Mecca for people of color, to being one of only a few women of color in my Masters program. With each discussion, I couldn't help but apply the things I was learning to the black and brown community.There is so much going on in the U.S that impacts the health of people of color. The Healthcare Scoop is a blog covering my opinions and thoughts on various healthcare topics with the perspective of color. I'm excited to share these thoughts with you all through The Healthcare Scoop. Enjoy!
