Changing Structural Racism in Health Care - Be Part of the Solution
The Unpacking Racism for Healthcare Professionals webinar series is a nine-hour course held over six weeks, beginning April 12, 2021 and concluding May 17. Each webinar will be held on a Monday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Eastern.
The goal of this six-week course is to help healthcare professionals examine, understand, and shift their own implicit racial bias and blind spots, and learn about the effects of racism in the health care industry. This course is an opportunity to learn about the experience of minorities in North America, with a toolkit for reflection and a forum for discussion in a safe, non-judgmental manner.
Listen to Dr. Carol Penn and Dr. Kathleen Farah provide a preview of the webinar series.
