RACIAL INEQUALITY IN MEDICINE
Let’s come together to discuss, dissect, and dismantle the barriers that marginalized groups face in the medical field.
It’s more important than ever to understand the structural and social barriers for marginalized groups. As an educational provider, we play a critical role in dismantling these barriers. How can we do this? We see these discussion-based events as a start.
Past Event Recordings
Racial Disparities in Mental Health Care
Racial disparities in mental healthcare are rampant. In the US, it is well documented that minorities receive less access to mental health services and lower-quality treatment than their white counterparts. During this event, our panelists will take a deep dive into what defines “racial disparities” in mental healthcare and ways in which treatment and intervention can be improved by prioritizing culturally-diverse training in higher education.
Black Pain Matters: How Historical Medical Assumptions about Black Pain Thresholds Impact Care
Historic assumptions and misconceptions about Black pain tolerance continue to impact not only the medical treatment that Black people receive today, but also the gaps in education that all medical students unknowingly face. In this event, our panelists will address well documented racial disparities in treatment―including around COVID-19―and will take a close look at Black case studies that can and should be included in medical curricula.
Bodies for Science: History of Experimentation on People of Color
The racist history of medical practices in the U.S. are the foundations for a current healthcare system wrought with inequality and fear. In this event, panelists unpack medical breakthroughs discovered through experimentation of the bodies of people of color as well as medical ethics, existing exploitation of BIPOC and impoverished communities, and proposed solutions for remedying this ongoing atrocity.
Acknowledging Racial Inequality in Medical Education
Racial inequality in medical education is an undeniable truth, and its impact has far reaching consequences which extend beyond medical school. Today, the rallying cry for the evolution of medical education is loud and clear, but how do we even begin to confront these uncomfortable truths and work towards an equitable solution?
The answer begins with acknowledging past―and present―inequality in medical education.
