April 7, 2021 1pm Anti-Black Racism: Taking Action on Harmful Bias and Discrimination in Clinical Learning Environments

On Wednesday, April 7 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation will host a webinar on addressing bias and eliminating discrimination and anti-Black racism in clinical learning environments.

Harmful bias and discrimination continue to be pervasive in health care, fueling inadequate treatment of patients. But it’s not just patients who suffer. Health care professionals and students also experience prejudice and discrimination that cause harm and limit their career opportunities. 

Save the date and register to attend

To accelerate efforts to address harmful bias and eliminate discrimination within health professions learning environments, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation convened more than 40 health professions education leaders, faculty, and students to map a path forward. The recommendations provide a roadmap to help health professions schools and clinical practice sites take action on equity, diversity, and inclusion to ensure a better future for our patients and for the next generation of health care providers.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of the recommendations and action steps that health professions educators, health care system leaders, doctors, nurses, and students can take to address this issue.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Valerie Montgomery Rice, MD, FACOG, President and Dean, Morehouse School of Medicine
  • Joseph Kerschner, MD, Provost, Executive Vice President, Medical School of Wisconsin; Dean, School of Medicine
  • Moderated by Holly Humphrey, MD, MACP, President, Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation
