Podcast: Racism as a public health issue
As the world continues to find solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic, society is confronting another pandemic: racism. Racism is embedded and woven into the historical fabric of the nation and finds itself throughout health care. From forced, unconsenting sterilization of Black women in the early 1900's (and among women in ICE detention in 2020) to segregated medical treatment by race and ethnicity, it is time for us to reckon with our history and work toward the structural changes necessary toward health equity. As health professionals and members of the health professionals training institutions, we must explore and embrace the difficult yet necessary work that is required of us to achieve health equity. This edition of the BFA newsletter will focus on the mission driven work being done to advance our work in dismantling structural racism and advancing racial justice in health professions education.
