Karmanos Health Equity Book Club
This event is in the past.
The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute is committed to delivering outstanding and equitable medical care to every patient, as well as their caregivers and family members. The Health Equity Book Club aims to enhance awareness of systematic racism, inequality, and misinformation within the medical community. This is achieved through research and reading followed by honest and transparent conversations about difficult topics. Join us as we explore ways to address and respond to disparities in health care delivery to enhance outcomes and better serve all patients.
Health care professionals, including trainees and students, and community members, are invited to attend.
This quarter we are discussing "Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine" by Damon Tweedy, M.D.
Isaac Powell, M.D., professor of Oncology, will offer comments and local perspective following Dr. Tweedy’s presentation.
Reading the book is not required to participate.
