Race, Racism and Health Inequity: What can we do about it?

Director, Hemoglobinopathy Program

Co-Director, Vascular Anomalies Clinic

Adjunct Assistant Professor

Department of Pediatrics

University of Minnesota

Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota

Presentation Details
This presentation is born out of my work as a physician and the recognition of the impact of racism and provider bias on racial disparities in health care. I have been studying, researching and training on this content extensively for the last 5 years and, with Dr. Heather Hackman, have been conducting racial justice trainings for physicians, nurses, students and others in the Upper Midwest. As a result, I have accrued a body of information regarding the transformation of racial disparities and share that content in this presentation.

It is hoped that participants leave the presentation with:

1. A recognition of race as an independent factor in health equity
2. An understanding of the barriers to health equity, including how racism affects health
3. A clearer sense of how unconscious biases and stereotyping on the part of providers impacts racial disparities in health care
4. An understanding of how education on issues of race, racism and whiteness can help provide a critical race lens for providers
5. Concrete tools for moving towards health equity and improving our self-efficacy in treating our patients of color
