About this Training
This course is the second part of Racial Inequalities in Healthcare, containing Units 5-8.
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.
