The Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences presents a virtual panel discussion on race and health education featuring Vice Dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for the Wayne State University School of Medicine Donovan Roy; Beaumont Hospital Director of Pharmacy Sandra Taylor; and WSU Graduate School Dean and Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences Amanda Bryant-Friedrich. Occupational Therapy Professor and Program Director Doreen Head will serve as moderator. All are welcome to attend.

*PharmD students: This event is IPPE approved for Professional Seminar*

We will be discussing issues of race – in particular the Black experience – in both the classroom and clinic. How can we as a college identify, meet, and help resolve challenges facing Black students and faculty, from recruitment to belonging to feeling welcome, capable, safe and supported? 

We are asking our community of students and faculty to anonymously submit their own experiences where race has tacitly or overtly impacted their health education or professional service by Feb. 15. We will select several submissions to guide the panel's conversation. 
During the event, the moderator will introduce and share each experience, and pose questions to the panel that relate to how we can avert (if negative) or nurture (if positive) such experiences at the college. We are looking for concrete action items, no matter how small, that we can all take responsibility for.
