You're Invited to PNHP-NY Metro's November 2019 Forum:
Racism in Medicine:
How does our history manifest in health care today?
Tuesday, November 19, from 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Mt. Sinai Beth Israel’s Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E. 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium, Manhattan
All PNHP-NY Metro forums are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE
Racism in medicine has a long insidious history, directly impacts the present, and promises to extend far into the future without direct intervention. Disparities in access, funding, staffing, quality of care and health outcomes are all tied significantly to race. An equitable, anti-racist health system that provides high quality care for all is our goal, so what’s stopping us from getting there?
Join us for a presentation and panel discussion on the history, present & future of racism in healthcare, including a 400 Years of Inequality Observance to mark the arrival of the first Africans to be sold into bondage in North America and to acknowledge the ecology of inequality that continues to grow out of that history.
