Addressing Privilege and Anti-Blackness in Academic Medicine invites participants to consider how racial inequities persists in the health care research system. This interactive session will explore ways that UC Davis Health can be a part of the solution. Participants will bring their expertise and experiences so that we can identify sites for personal and collective action.
Topics covered include:
- Legacies of exclusion within academic medicine
- Mistrust of academic medicine by Black communities and communities of color
- Needed changes in clinical work, research systems, mentoring/teaching practices, and administrative structures
- Barriers preventing the advancement of medical researchers dedicated to racial equity
This conversation will augment efforts toward self-education and create community in efforts to redress the legacies of white supremacy in academic medicine.
