A woman shouldn’t feel uncomfortable about her body, especially when it comes to her menstrual cycle and discussing it openly with others. Unfortunately, talking about periods for women in general is still so taboo as society tells women that it is “unacceptable” or “dirty.” When you think about this through the lens of intersectionality and layer ethnicity – particularly African Americans – on top of that, it may be more difficult to engage in open discussion.

Our last guest Gil Silva serves as the Acting Regional Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in Atlanta, GA. He will discuss everything you need to know about the Medicare Open Enrollment period.  If you have a Medicare health or prescription drug plan, you only have until the end of Open Enrollment, December 7, to make changes to your 2020 plan. Medicare’s new Plan Finder makes it easy to review and compare Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans. Plan Finder provides a personalized experience to help you learn about different options and select the coverage plan that best meets your needs. Even if you are happy with your current Medicare coverage, comparing plans pay. Every year, Medicare health plans change in cost, coverage, and participating providers. You might find something that better fits your needs, or you may be able to save on prescriptions and other costs. If you miss the December 7 deadline, you will likely have to wait a full year before you can make changes to your plan. For more information visit: www.medicare.gov/plan-compare
