The work of racial justice and healing requires more inclusive narratives.
This initiative arose from the call to address the harmful effects of racism, microaggressions, and implicit bias on physicians from marginalized groups and communities. Efforts toward making medicine more inclusive require an understanding of the experiences of these physicians, and reconciliation requires providing a platform for those most impacted to communicate their narrative.
New Course Available:
On July 25, 2023, the MMA hosted a virtual symposium to launch the video series and hear from a panel of the featured physicians. This was an opportunity to discuss emergent issues relating to racism in medicine and uplift a call to action. This event is now available as an online course. 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ are available.
