When we don’t feel like our concerns are heard at the doctor’s office, it can be difficult to get the right diagnosis and treatment. We get advice on how to communicate your needs at our next appointment. We also talk about how to budget for the financial cost of romantic relationships.

Dismissed at the doctor's office? Here's how to advocate for yourself
We trust our doctors with our lives. But women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, geriatric patients and heavier patients are more likely to encounter medical professionals who dismiss their concerns or question their pain. We talk to an expert on patient-provider relationships about how we can better advocate for ourselves at the doctor’s office as the experts on our own bodies.
The financial costs of romantic relationships
Love can be expensive, whether its dates, a wedding or even having children. A sociologist joins us to discuss the impact that costs and economics have at different stages in romantic relationships.
