It is with great pleasure, excitement, and humility, that I invite you on a learning journey to deconstruct the origins of race and racism in our society, and the various ways we internalize and perpetuate the harms of these violent systems.
While health care values and ethics have always aligned with equity and justice, the practices have not. Gaps in our education leave practitioners ill-equipped to solve the complex problems caused by structural oppression and white supremacy.
Deconstructing Racism in Health Care fills curricular gaps by contextualizing racial/ethnic health inequities; providing tools for naming and supporting racial trauma in the workplace; deconstructing and de-centering whiteness; and identifying opportunities for allyship and accompliceship.
I have supported various health care institutions, including:
- The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
- Sutter Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency
- Columbia University School of Nursing
- University of California San Francisco Department of Family and Community Medicine
- University of California San Francisco Osher Center for Integrative Medicine
Consider engaging the course as an individual, a leadership team, organization-wide training, or to enhance your curriculum.
