Hosted by the UNC School of Medicine’s Office of Inclusive Excellence, “Can We Talk About Race?” serves as a kickoff for a medical education curricular innovation and a nuanced discussion on race at the Ackland Art Museum. In light of the racially motivated Pittsburgh shootings, ongoing turmoil over Silent Sam, and other recent highly charged public events, there is a pressing need for enhanced and integrated attention to race and ethnicity in UNC School of Medicine curriculum.
The pilot of this curricular innovation will take place at the Ackland Art Museum on December 13, 3:30-5:00 pm. Invited attendees include student leaders and all Foundation Phase faculty, including but not limited to: Course Block Directors, Small Group Leaders, Social and Health Systems (SHS) Faculty, and Patient Centered Care (PCC) Faculty. Conversation will be facilitated by students in the Racial Equity in Medicine Elective and academic specialists from the Ackland Art Museum. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
