SURVIVING CHAOS

AUTHOR TELLS HIS STORY ABOUT GROWING IN EXTREME POVERTY WITH A SCHIZOPHRENIC MOM

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Article On The Black birthing and pediatric experiences Platform IRTH Continues Below...

The event will also feature special video appearances by Tonya Lewis Lee, Christy Turlington Burns, and Lisa Price, founder of Carol's Daughter. Callers who leave reviews will be entered to win cash and prizes!

The reviews from the “Irth A Thon” will be used for a new Yelp-like app called, Irth, as in birth but without the b for bias. Irth allows Black and brown people who are expecting or new parents to find and leave reviews of their prenatal, birthing and pediatric experiences of care, up to the baby’s first birthday. Users can search for reviews by doctor and hospital name and by city, state or zip code to see if other Black parents have recommended a provider.

On the back end, Irth turns the qualitative reviews into quantitative data, identifying hospitals and providers who are doing well and providing real-time, patient-reported insights to help improve those with poor reviews.

“Irth is a powerful digital platform to leverage our consumer power to push for transparency, accountability, and systemic change in the medical system and to generate up to date, never-seen-before data directly from Black and brown parents for hospitals to do more than just take an anti-bias training and tick the box,” says founder, Kimberly Seals Allers. “But we only have strength in numbers, we need everyone to leave reviews so we can inform our community on where we are being treated respectfully and where we are not.”

According to the CDC, Black women are 243% more likely to die from pregnancy and childbirth-related causes. Racism and bias in our care have been identified as a root cause of why Black women are disproportionately dying.

Irth, a project of the NYC-based tech and media non-profit, Narrative Nation, launched in the Google Play and Apple app stores in March. Learn more at IrthApp.com.
