Solidarity Week Event: Trust, Risk, and Race in American Medicine



In recognition of Solidarity Week, please join the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS), Student National Medical Association (SNMA), and Unite for Uncomfortable Conversations: Trust, Risk, and Race in American Medicine on Sunday, Feb 21, 2021 from 6-7:30 PM CST.

This will be a discussion on the history of medical mistrust in the Black community using an article and short video that will be sent after you RSVP.

This single session is offered as a part of GHHS Solidarity Week, an initiative held country wide by GHHS chapters to demonstrate solidarity with our patients and peers.

RSVP at www.tinyurl.com/uncomfortableconvos for access to the pre-session materials and Zoom link!

The goal of the GHHS is to improve health care through placing human interests, values, and dignity at the core of teaching and practice. The COVID pandemic and recent events have brought light to the hard fact that the interests, values, and dignity of the Black community are being left out of our teaching and practice. We, as future healthcare professionals, can do more and be more for our patients.

Working in SOLIDARITY and partnership with SNMA and Unite, Uncomfortable Conversations returns for a one-time virtual learning event in the pursuit of anti-racism education in general and in the context of healthcare. As students, we do not profess to be experts in the field, rather, we hope that this session will provide material for introspection and contemplation.
