Unveiling ‘Not Now Please: Confronting Racism in Germany’s Medical Sector

The countdown has begun, and the anticipation is palpable! On September 15th, 2023, I am thrilled to announce the launch of my book, “Not Now Please: Living through Racism, Ableism, and Grief.” This project has been a labor of love, and I’m eager to share its insights, stories, and messages with the world.

Understanding the Nexus of Racism and Ableism in Healthcare

The medical sector is often seen as a sanctuary of care and healing. However, as “Not Now Please” reveals, it can also be a battleground for those who face discrimination due to their race or disability. The stories within the book shed light on the unique challenges that individuals encounter when seeking healthcare services.

Narratives of Discrimination

The book shares personal narratives that uncover instances of racism and ableism within healthcare settings. These stories reveal the often-overlooked biases, stereotypes, and prejudices that can affect the quality of care individuals receive. From dismissive attitudes to lack of cultural competence, these experiences leave a lasting impact.

Why Discuss Racism in Healthcare?

Addressing racism within the medical sector is not about pointing fingers but about acknowledging a systemic problem that affects real people and their well-being. By shedding light on these issues, we can start essential conversations that lead to positive change. It’s about creating a healthcare system where everyone, regardless of their background, receives fair and equal treatment.

A Call to Action:

As the book’s launch approaches, I invite you to join me in these important conversations. “Not Now Please” is not just a book; it’s a call to action. It encourages readers to question the status quo, challenge biases, and advocate for a more inclusive and equitable healthcare system.

How You Can Be Part of the Change:

  1. Read the Book: First and foremost, get your copy of “Not Now Please” on Amazon starting September 15th. Dive into the stories, experiences, and insights shared within its pages.
  2. Start Conversations: Use the book as a conversation starter. Discuss the issues it raises with friends, family, and colleagues. Encourage open dialogue about racism in healthcare.
  3. Advocate for Change: Support initiatives and organizations working to address healthcare disparities and combat racism within the medical sector.

The launch of “Not Now Please” marks the beginning of a journey – a journey to confront uncomfortable truths, challenge systemic injustices, and work towards a world where racism has no place in healthcare or any other facet of our lives. I’m excited to have you on this journey with me, and together, we can make a difference.
