[Webinar] On the Frontlines: Filipino/Filipinx Healthcare Workers - New York University

On May 4, 2021, I joined Emerson Ea, Assistant Dean at NYU's Rory Meyers College of Nursing and Clinical Nurse Manager Kym Villamer in discussing the experiences of Filipino healthcare workers in the Philippines, United States, and beyond, in a session moderated by Wagner Professor John Gershman and organized by Sulo: Philippine Studies Initiative at NYU, KJCC, Robert F. Wagner Graduate School Office of International Programs, Rory Meyers College of Nursing, and the New York Southeast Asia Network.

In my presentation, I argued that healthcare workers in the Philippines are not just in the medical frontlines, they are in the political frontlines as well, serving as voices of reason (and resistance) amid the incompetent response of the Duterte administration.
