Postcall Rounds. Last pt of the morning. Fairly straightforward. Not too exotic.

Chest pain and severe uncontrolled hypertension. Not his first time at our safety net hospital. Picks up his meds. And takes them, too. Always.

Young. Male. Poor.

Also? Black.

Just like me.
It was almost noon. We’d been rounding for a few hrs. 

Me? Cognitively tired. Hungry, too. Worried about something at home. And a work deadline, too.


Last patient of the morning. I am listening.

Young. Black. Male. Poor. Chest pain. High BP.

And at Grady.

Young. Black. Male. Poor. Here.
Hungry. Tired. Busy. So busy. Human.

“Let’s get one anyway. Just in case.”

Yeah. Just in case.

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily
