This course will engage students in the roots of historic and current racism and how it generates different health related outcomes for underrepresented minorities. We will cite multiple factors that lead to health disparities moving from personal identities and their influence, to examples of systemic oppression and their culpability, to implicit bias' profound effect on health care. We will also evaluate and discuss plausible solutions.
