Health Equity Learning Series: Race in Today’s Medicine: Science, History, and Myth

Join us for an opportunity to deepen your understanding of race and health equity. This event will feature a pre-recorded talk by Harriet Washington along with a facilitated community conversation.

In her talk, Harriet Washington explores how racist ideas/myths became imbedded into the thinking, culture and systems of the United States, fundamentally shaping both science and medicine. Washington guides people through examples of the historical and current consequences of these myths for African Americans and other communities of color.

Washington is an award-winning medical writer and editor who is well- known for her books, journalism and other scholarship related to medical ethics.

We look forward to seeing you there!
