We hope you will join us for this session. In addition to reading the articles, we ask that you consider the following questions for our discussion and we look forward to hearing your responses.
- How have the racial myths and fallacies about physiological differences between blacks and whites that were so grotesquely explored in the medical experiments of Dr. Hamilton, Dr. J. Marion Sims, Samuel Cartwright, and many others had an effect on medical treatments for black people going forward, including into our own time?
- Have you observed conscious or implicit bias in your own medical interactions as a patient or as a medical professional?
- How has the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the existing inequities in America's health care system? How were those made worse by social determinants, environmental inequality, "weathering," and other factors?
- What can be done in medical institutions to counter conscious or implicit bias? What changes have you seen in the institutions you are part of to address this issue?
