The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a light on the longstanding racial and ethnic health disparities that persist in our country. In this HHIVE lab talk hosted by Health Humanities Grand Rounds, Damon Tweedy, MD, associate professor of psychiatry at Duke University School of Medicine, 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.
Tweedy is the author of Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine.
