Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

“This is how Black people get killed…” said Dr. Susan Moore, an African American physician, speaking about the medical treatment she received before dying of COVID-19 last December. From her hospital bed, Dr. Moore documented the medical racism she experienced in a Facebook video. Being a physician did not protect her from racial discrimination in health care. As patients and as health care professionals, Black women are disbelieved, belittled and not heard. We often hear about racial discrimination from Black patients but rarely hear from Black clinicians.

In this webinar, we will discuss this underexplored topic: medical racism experienced by Black women as clinicians. What impact does racism have on their personal health? On their relationships with medical colleagues? On their mentoring of young Black adults interested in becoming health care providers?

Furthermore, we will discuss who has the responsibility to address medical racism and what concrete action steps should be taken.

We invite you and hope you will be part of this conversation.
