Dr. Justina Ford was a local hero in Denver who overcame barriers to become CO’s first Black woman to work as a licensed doctor. Let's celebrate her 150th birthday by rededicating ourselves to her life’s cause and working to ensure that everyone has access to the care they need.
Celebrate Colorado’s pioneering Black doctor on the new Dr. Justina Ford Day this January
Family physician Dr. Danyaal Raza gives three examples of the confusing and sometimes contradictory messaging in the stay-at-home order announced by Ont. Premier Doug Ford on Jan. 12:
I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!
I got the polygraph test Dr. Ford took showing truthfulness about her account in the record. To quote a judge: “law enforcement agencies use polygraphs to test the credibility of witnesses” & the tests “serve law enforcement purposes.” That judge was Brett Kavanaugh in 2016 case.
President Trump, Dr. Blasey Ford did not want her story of sexual assault to be public. She requested confidentiality and I honored that. It wasn’t until the media outed her that she decided to come forward. You may not respect women and the wishes of victims, but I do.
