Host Indrias Kassaye and Dr. Jillian Inouye explore how nursing can look at not just mental and social effects, but at physical and biological interactions, as well as Dr. Inouye's expansive work within the Diabetes Prevention Project, her own RO1 that looked at managing diabetes and depression in ethnic groups (mainly Asian Pacific Islanders), and the importance for rising generations to mobilize in order to take action in support of future minority healthcare.
Sample the penultimate season one episode of “Mental Health Trailblazers, Psychiatric Nurses Speak Up,” where our host Indrias Kassaye will be interviewing Dr. Jillian Inouye: a licensed psychologist, a qualified mental health professional, a board certified clinical specialist in psychiatric nursing, and an advanced practice registered nurse. Among her many areas of research, she’s presented new insights on topics such as Asian-Pacific Islanders' Health Disparities and psychiatric care, including schizophrenia, depression, substance use and abuse and more.
Working hand-in-hand with politicians during an early summer internship, Dr. Inouye found her love of psychology, psychiatry, nursing and cross-cultural problems by helping to craft a bill focused on combating child abuse due to family or support system isolation within military institutions. In working to overcome both internal limitations (being reserved) and external challenges (racially based microaggressions), Dr. Inouye has been able to expand her career to regularly contribute to the scientific community.
Within this conversation, Dr. Inouye and Indrias work though concepts such as how nursing can look at not just mental and social effects, but at physical and biological interactions, her expansive work within the Diabetes Prevention Project as well as her own RO1 that looked at managing diabetes and depression in ethnic groups (mainly Asian Pacific Islanders), and the importance for rising generations to mobilize in order to take action in support of future minority healthcare.
If you want to gain further awareness on how legislation plays an important role in the dissemination of research, wish to receive insight on the value of mentoring (especially for Minority Fellowship Program fellows) so as to best know what key elements may arise from recent historical moments, or just have an interest in the political landscapes that can accompany various grant submission processes, then start this episode.
