On Jan. 24-25, Duke University School of Medicine will be hosting a symposium on Advancing an Anti-Racism Curriculum in the Health Professions: Putting Knowledge into Practice. The symposium will open on Thursday evening with the Boyarsky Lecture "More Just, More Humane: Reimagining the Social Role of Medicine." A half-day of presentations and roundtable discussions on educational innovations, opportunities and challenges will follow on Friday morning, including Brigit Carter, associate dean for diversity and inclusion, as a panelist for "Addressing Race in Nursing Education."
This symposium is free and designed for faculty and staff who want to find better strategies for meaningful racial equity education for health professionals. It will offer the chance to share ideas, promote networks and build on our commitment to justice and equity in health care. Registration is required.
