From the Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP)

April 23, 2022

Dear Medicare supporter,

When the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it was ending the controversial Direct Contracting program and replacing it with the REACH model, the agency touted their emphasis on “equity.”

But when you look under the hood of the rebranded program, REACH is more focused on private equity than health equity.

To learn more, please join me on Monday, May 9 at 7:30 pm ET, when I’ll moderate a roundtable discussion about Direct Contracting/REACH, the dangers of privatization and so-called “value-based care,” and how to achieve true equity in our health system. Panelists include Dr. Linda Rae Murray, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, and Dr. Claire Cohen.
(Bolding by me)

The program is free, but you must register in advance for access.

Sex, Death, and Empire: The Roots of Violence Against Asian Women

The line from America’s earliest empire in the Philippines to Japan, Korea, Vietnam—and anti-Asian violence at home—is straight, clear, and written in blood.

On March 11, a man with a football player’s build assaulted a 67-year-old Asian woman in Yonkers, N.Y. As she walked past him, he called out, “Asian bitch!” She ignored him. He followed her into her building and punched her from behind, knocking her to the ground. Then, over the course of one minute and 12 seconds, Tammel Esco roundhoused his fists into her—mechanically, unwaveringly—pummeling her over 125 times. He then stomped on her seven times and spat on her before walking away. The victim, whose name has not been released, was hospitalized with broken bones in her face, bleeding in her brain, and cuts and bruises across her head. Esco has been charged with attempted murder.

Four weeks before that, in the early hours of February 13, Christina Yuna Lee, a 35-year-old Korean American woman, was murdered in her apartment in New York City’s Chinatown after returning from a party. Someone had followed Lee into the building and forced his way into her apartment. One hour and 20 minutes later, she was found dead in her bathtub by police, naked from the waist up, with 40 stab wounds to her body. Her attacker, 25-year-old Assamad Nash, an unhoused man, had tried to sexually assault her. Lee died fighting back.

One hundred and twenty-five blows.

Forty stabs.

From March 2020 to December 2021, 6,506 hate incidents against Asian American and Pacific Islander women were reported to Stop AAPI Hate; the actual number is likely far greater. This is almost double the incidents reported by men. Yet media coverage of Lee’s death relegated the question of racism to a single sentence about what unnamed authorities did or did not know.

CNN: “It’s not clear whether Lee’s race or ethnicity played a role in the attack.”

The New York Times: “The authorities have not determined that Ms. Lee was targeted because of her ethnicity.”

This is a very interesting (and sad) article telling some of the history of violence against Asian and Pacific Island women and how it is never addressed by the people (men) in charge.
