Americanah: culture shock, rewiring your brain and connecting women to healthcare with Dr Cortina McCurry
Manage episode 272622980 series 2643183
This week on Book(ish) I sit down with Dr Cortina McCurry to discuss Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Cortina has a PHD in neuroscience from MIT and worked for the Boston Consulting Group while starting a new company, Caia, focussed on providing women with the ability to talk to healthcare professionals easily and effectively. Our conversation ranges over how the lower 48 states see Alaska, learning responses to change how your brain works and the difficulty finding good advice for women in healthcare. Enjoy!
