Over the past few years, there has been increasing attention and discourse focusing on the root causes of health inequities and the role of structural racism in these inequities. In these conversations, how medicine considers the construct of race has surfaced as an area for redress, as well as controversy.
In order to provide an opportunity for academic discourse on these subjects and further our own individual educational growth and understanding of the topics, we have collaborated with our partner UCs and are pleased to invite you to a virtual event series: Racism and Race: The Use of Race in Medicine and Implications for Health Equity.
The first session launches on March 24 with subsequent sessions on April 7, April 14, and a final session in late April. A detailed description for each session is online, and all events will be recorded.
All faculty, staff, and learners are invited to attend. Please RSVP online for the sessions. We envision this as a mini-course and hope that participants will be able to attend at least the first three sessions.
