Powerful Story from last year:
Hue Process: The Quantitative Measurement of Race and Racism in Medicine explores the theoretical underpinnings of racism in medicine while confronting critical methodologies to modeling the social mechanisms and consequences of racism. From medical education to practice, racism integrally shapes where people receive healthcare (e.g. ER physician vs. primary physician, public hospitals vs. private hospitals, etc.). Hue Process contributes to biomedical and social science discourse by interpreting how, where, and when racism is infused during a medical encounter.
Discussions about race are covertly coded conversations about racism. How can we rethink the ways race and ethnicity inform medical practice? Join us in Perelman School of Medicine as Dr. Jenkins tackles "Rethinking Race and Ethnicity Medicine."
