Y-Dub Discussions: Reckoning with Racial Trauma in Medicine @ Virtual via Zoom

Join us for our first Y-Dub Discussions of 2021 as we unpack the history of racial trauma and inequities in medicine and health care. REGISTER NOW!

As we’ve learned in our 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge, the history of medicine and health care in the U.S. is marked by racial injustice and myriad forms of violence: unequal access to health care, the segregation of medical facilities, and the exclusion of African Americans from medical education, among other examples. These, together with disparities in housing, employment opportunities, wealth, and social service provision, produce disproportionate health outcomes by race. As our nation grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to confront these painful histories to develop more effective anti-racist public health responses.

Panelists: Gina McFarlane-El, CEO, Five Rivers Health Centers; Phil Walker, Medical Student, Boonshoft School of Medicine; Dr. Mamle Anim, Chief Medical Officer, Five Rivers Health Centers; Fabrice Juin, Project Manager, Local Office of Minority Health, Public Health, Dayton & Montgomery County; Taylor Michael Curtis, Professor, African American Psychology, Sinclair College; Manicka Thomas, Associate Clinical Director, YWCA Dayton
