Description:
At a time when many communities across America are struggling with issues of racial injustice and social unrest, national dialogue about systemic inequities is on the rise. Among the sectors impacted is health care, where issues surrounding health equity – and the presence of racism and implicit bias – have been demonstrated. This symposium will explore these issues and why they are of critical importance to the nation’s medical regulatory system. Topics covered will range from the impact of racism and implicit bias on health disparities to the need for systemic change to eliminate barriers that prevent access to quality care for at-risk communities.
