Anti-Racism Resources

In our commitment to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, we have created a repository of anti-racism resources to compliment current offerings.

Social justice advocate and law scholar Dorothy Roberts, JD has a precise and powerful message: Race-based medicine is bad medicine. Even today, many doctors still use race as a medical shortcut; they make important decisions about things like pain tolerance based on a patient’s skin color instead of medical observation and measurement. In this searing talk, Roberts lays out the lingering traces of race-based medicine — and invites us to be a part of ending it. “It is more urgent than ever to finally abandon this backward legacy,” she says, “and to affirm our common humanity by ending the social inequalities that truly divide us.” | WATCH VIDEO

Why does race matter so profoundly for health? David R. Williams, PhD, MPH, Florence Sprague Norman and Laura Smart Norman Professor of Public Health and Chair of the Department of Social and Behavioral University, developed a scale to measure the impact of discrimination on well-being, going beyond traditional measures like income and education to reveal how factors like implicit bias, residential segregation and negative stereotypes create and sustain inequality. In this eye-opening talk, Williams presents evidence for how racism is producing a rigged system — and offers hopeful examples of programs across the US that are working to dismantle discrimination. | WATCH VIDEO
