Talking to Kids About Bias
Dear Walkers,

Thank you to those of you who joined us live for our September 2020 virtual Walk with a Doc today!

For the September walk, we welcomed Dr. Tricia Sellers, Director of Pediatric Hospitalists at Summerlin Hospital, who presented a brief, kid-friendly talk about discussing bias with kids and then took questions live. Dr. Sellers also penned a blog post on Bias in Medicine for the Nevada AAP website worth checking out. If you missed it, watch the video replay of Dr. Seller's talk here.

There are a number of children's books that are also helpful for parents to discuss bias with kids. Here are some of Dr. Sellers' recommendations:

  • Preschool
  • “Two Eyes, a Nose, and a Mouth”
  • “Shades of People”
  • Early School
  • “Grandpa, is everything black bad?”
  • “Sulwe”
  • Middle-High School
  • “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You”
  • “This Book is Anti-Racist”

Below are a number of links to resources to better understand bias and how to talk to kids about it.
