Our Health Outside of Healthcare

Saturday, February 6, 2021 - 9:15-10:15 am


Racism is a root cause of social determinants of health. Structural racism has impacted every conceivable part of our society, and by perpetuating structural racism, intentionally or unintentionally, we do our patients, and our society at large, plenty of harm. Recognizing our own biases and how they may impact our relationships and decisions about our patients, our colleagues, and society at large is vital. Although engaging in these conversations can be quite uncomfortable, we can work to create the space and time for brave spaces to have honest discussions to deepen our own understanding in order to address ways in which we can work towards mitigating the negative impacts of structural racism within our society. Come join us for a discussion that explores what structural racism is, how it has impacted our physical and mental health, and how we can intentionally create spaces to address it.
