On this episode of Good Law | Bad Law Aaron Freiwald, managing partner of Philadelphia law firm Freiwald Law and host of Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Cheri Wilson, a health equity subject matter expert and diversity & inclusion specialist, to discuss implicit bias in our health care system.
Cheri tells us about implicit biases, what they are, and what it means. She goes on to explain some of the implicit biases in our current health care system, how they affect patients, specifically minority patients, and what we can do to help avoid these biases.
She also explains how implicit biases or unconscious biases affect other aspects of our lives and other cultures and statuses. Some examples include how studies show obese people and people with ethnic sounding names are less likely to get hired for a job.

Today Aaron Freiwald, host of the Good Law | Bad Law podcast and managing partner of Freiwald Law, is joined by Attorney Steve Schain from the Hoban Law Group, a national law firm that concentrates its practice entirely in marijuana law and cannabis law. The firm’s practice is exploding because so many states now have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational uses.
Aaron and Steve have a thought-provoking discussion about the challenges for businesses getting into the marijuana industry, the tension between state and federal law in this field, and the prospects for changes in marijuana law in Pennsylvania.
