Season 2 | Episode 15 - Striking A Balance | "Identifying the Mental Health Strengths and Resiliencies of Black MSM..."


We were handed our ENTIRE LIVES during the recording session with self-proclaimed blackademic, Jagadisa-devasri Dacus. Needless to say, we are beyond honored to share all the gems with you! He took us through his incredible journey of scholarship in social work and HIV prevention, getting funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and his career highlighting presentation at the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention) in June. We also get a real lesson in remaining balanced as he talks us through his rigorous yogic practices, the art of always giving back to yourself and staying connected with the outside world during the isolation of a PHD. Enjoy!
