06/09/15 - Everyone makes prejudicial judgments . . . but exposure to groups and individuals can mitigate them.    

On the next Topical Currents we visit with the president of the Florida Center for Cultural Competence, Gail Price-Wise.  She’s an expert in communications improvement among people of different racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds . . . including miscommunication and mistrust in the provider-patient relationship. We’ll discuss her book, An Intoxicating Error: Mistranslation, Medical Malpractice, and Prejudice. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
