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. Part 1 of Racial Inequalities in Healthcare will focus on uncovering important historical context and narratives which created conditions for, and justified medical abuse based on race. This course will discuss specific examples of this abuse, and will call on participants to reflect on the pervasive impact of this history and narratives. 4.5 Continuing Education hours available.
