Racism and white supremacy are fierce, ever present and challenging forces that are the fabric of the United States from slavery through emancipation, Jim Crow segregation and Civil Rights. They impact the thinking, behavior and actions of individuals and institutions, including professional education and health care. The pernicious nature of racial and ethnic inequities requires a long-term commitment to change through education, systems changes and individual action.

Last year, during the COVID-19 pandemic and reeling from the tragic death of George Floyd, UCSF launched the Anti-Racism Initiative to address the impact of systemic racism on the health, health care and life expectancy of Black, Indigenous and other people of color (BIPOC) communities.

This unique course will feature UCSF leaders of the Anti-Racism Initiative and discuss the impact and opportunity of this work for all.
