Persistent medical mythologies concerning race, intrinsic system inequities, and the commodification of healthcare create a terrible synergy that sabotages the health of African Americans and other people of color. 

Join award-winning medical writer and editor, Harriet Washington, for a talk that will illustrate how we can change this pathological system by applying what we have learned to correct its policy failures, from fair access to personal healthcare to addressing vulnerabilities triggered by the environmental racism and infectious disease biases.

Thursday, September 24
3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
