What would it take to have a caring system that addressed health disparities, honored indigenous medicine, and respected the stories and struggles of all people? What are the systems and environmental factors that create conditions of illness? How can we create a culture of care for our children, elders, and the planet?  And, what could we be doing differently in this prolonged, confusing, and painful time of Covid-19?
