HEALTH HUMANITIES GRAND ROUNDS: Reflections on Race & Medicine in the Year of COVID-19 & Nationwide Protests.

Damon Tweedy, MD
Associate Professor of Psychiatry
Duke University

The COVID-19 pandemic has shined an ugly light on the longstanding racial and ethnic health disparities that persist in our country. Coupled with the televised murder of George Floyd, these events have sparked a renewed racial reckoning in America. In his talk, Dr. Tweedy will explore the dilemma of race within the medical school and hospital setting, highlighting the challenges faced by black patients and black doctors while reviewing recent developments and reforms in the field.

This Zoom webinar is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
