12/02/1977

In this clip Dr. Emillio Carillo, co-founder of the Boriqua Health Center, talks about being sensitive medically to the Latino Community by not dismissing outright herbal and traditional medicines the patient will often bring to medical appointments and treating patients with respect. Overall the program examines a number of health issues, with a focus on the needs of the Latino and Black community. Host Eduardo Diaz interviews Dr. Emilio Carrillo, cofounder of the Boricua Health Organization of Boston, to discuss problems related to healthcare delivery to Boston's Latino population. "Encore" segments include 1974 interviews conducted by former Say Brother writer/researcher Dighton Spooner with Dr. Houston Kelly (on hypertension and the diet of the African American community), Dr. Louis Sullivan of the Boston Sickle Cell Center (on the physical and political implications of sickle cell anemia), and Howard Hughes, Director of the Dimock Community Health Center's alcoholism program (on recognizing and treating alcohol problems). Program includes a brief narrated segment (also from 1974) on lead paint poisoning and a short interview segment with African artist El Loco conducted by Barbara Barrow, in which Loco explains the symbolism of his work. Dr. Sullivan went on to become Secretary of Heath and Human Services under President Carter. Produced by Barbara Barrow. Directed by David De Barger.
