Deep Dive | White Supremacy Culture Characteristics: Right to Comfort
Is anti-racism actually racism against white people? We’ve heard people make that case and have to wonder how little it takes to trigger an accusation of racism from folks who already have so much privilege, including the privilege of demanding that institutional and structural racism not be challenged, or even named for that matter. This is only one slice of the ‘right to comfort’ pie. Join us as we explore other aspects of this WSC characteristic and talk about its antidotes.

Racism in Medicine and Medical Education: A Personal and Professional Imperative
Despite our collective hard work, commitment, and aspirations, racism remains very much a part of the experience of both our work and educational environments. It is also a major factor in how clinical care is provided and how research is conducted. Why is that the case, and what can we do to undo the oppression? Join us to discuss the importance of anti-racism as the organizing principle of our profession.
