Are you Ready to Commit?
Black History is deeper than just a month’s worth of celebration, increased social media visibility and teachings in school. It is more than Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcom X, and the other Black warriors that have been popularly a part of the streamlined approach to disseminating information about Black history.
We want to challenge you to break the cycle of isolating Black excellence and history into a month’s worth of time, once a year. Black history is more. We challenge you to break the cycle of white America’s continuous attempts to make up for centuries of Black oppression cosigned with heinous behaviors like racism and discrimination.
What can you expect from this course?
If you want to sign up and be a “committed learner” of the online course Black and Amplified, you will gain access to six (6) unit course, with each unit spanning two months. Each unit will contain one (1) hour of video content featuring the course facilitators, supplemental material, and and weekly learning check-ins with M.I.N.D.F.U.L. Mondays to encourage application of knowledge and integration into your personal and professional life.

We are often unaware of the history behind our perceptions of each other that are both conscious and unconscious thoughts. Many of these ideas and preconceptions are informal knowledge that originate from white supremacist ideology. White supremacist ideology has gone through a long historical process many people are not aware of. These ideas have a strong influence on how we think about healthcare, disease, and each other. This training will cover history that influences our current problems with racial disparity in the health care system. The issues that are addressed in this training may be quite a lot, but it is a fraction of many issues that persist.
The course Racial Inequality in Healthcare is about uncovering and discovering the historical and more recent racial disparities in healthcare. Learning about the past is relevant to our awareness and sensitivity to communities of color in the present. We need to be aware about what people have been capable of doing to others in the name of medicine. We need to know the thought and ideology that has led to those actions. We also need to be able to identify the actions and how they happened. All to make us more aware of how people of color experience issues of health unequally.
