Feb 25: An Anti-Racist Imperative for Clinical Practice: On Racism, Health, and Clinical Responsibility
We will explore the connections between racism and health outcomes and the role of physicians in addressing racism.

In this mini-series of one-hour webinars, the WOEMA Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee presents two nationally recognized experts in systemic racism and implicit bias in the healthcare workforce. First, Dr. Rhea Boyd, a pediatrician at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, California, will present on racial injustice and its effects on health equity. Two weeks later, Dr. Danielle Hairston, Director of Residency Training in the Department of Psychiatry Howard University College of Medicine Washington DC, will discuss understanding implicit bias in patient care and provide evidence-based instruction and tools for clinicians to overcome them. Together, learners will start to develop an awareness and understand of their own biases when caring for patients that will enable recognition of the learner’s own intrinsic biases and the tools available to mitigate them.
