When Dalyss Tomayer found out three of her relatives had had breast cancer, it was enough to qualify her for the genetic testing which showed she had a high risk of breast cancer herself.

“I had known for years that two of my dad’s sisters had breast cancer, and it was in speaking with one of my aunts that I then found out also one of my cousins had breast cancer,” Tomayer said. “So, it was at that time that I realize that I did qualified for the genetic

Medicine’s Changing View Of Racism Towards Healthcare Professionals

Almost a decade ago, I was subject to a racist tirade by a patient.

The patient told me, “Why don’t you go back to India?”  

I responded angrily to the patient: “Why don’t you leave this [expletive] hospital?” 

I sought guidance on how to cope with and respond to the patient’s racism and found little.  The institution at which I worked had no policies in place that guided my response.

My conclusion: there were limits to service and the abuse to which we might accept as healthcare professionals.
