I (Aana) will share some of her own story as to how and why I have come to be invested in white anti-racism work. I will invite participants to do the same via individual reflection. There will be a brief time for participants to share a bit of their journey.

Suggested Pre-reading: Ch. 1, “From Color-Blindness to Race-Conscious Parenting” in Raising White Kids by Jennifer Harvey (a Des Moines author; Ch. 6 is optional/bonus). Her primary audience for this book is white parents. (attachment). 

For the purposes of our work together, think about these questions: 

1.Why does Harvey think “colorblindness” and “celebrate diversity” are inadequate approaches to parenting (and I add for healthcare providers)? What examples/reasons does she give? 

2.How might Harvey’s suggestions of a “race-conscious” approach be of use in healthcare contexts? 

 

Session 2:Wed. August 5th    1-2:30 pm  (90 minutes):  Racial-Ethnic & Socio-Economic Inequities in US Health & Healthcare
This session will lay out the realities of systemic inequity in health and healthcare (e.g. access to care, mortality and disease rates, quality of care, provider-patient relations). It will also unpack the social determinants of healthTogether we will unpack how racism concretely affects the quality of life for people of color in terms of their health and healthcare. We will explore what is meant by “toxic stress” and “weathering”.

Session 3: Friday, August 7th 1-2:30 pm -- 90 minutes:  Implicit Bias & Healthcare & Where Do We Go From Here? 

This session will explore how implicit bias and stereotypes get in the way of fostering strong patient-provider relationships and how we can become more aware of these dynamics and work to minimize them in our practices and relationships. It will also suggest concrete steps we can take in our own lives/work to for the sake of building better relationships and providing ever better care to others.
