Racial Equity in Healthcare Pre-Readings and Videos 

Taking Stock of Who We Are, Where We Come From, & Why We are Here

To view this sessions recording please use the following link:


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? 


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”.

Pre-reading & Viewing:

1.    Ch. 2 by Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk about Race – attachment

2.    Brief JAMA 202 article on racial disparities in healthcare: https://jamanetwork.com/channels/health-forum/fullarticle/2767595

5.10 min. video on Black maternal and infant mortality - PBS Newshour:

2.Williams, et.al., “Racism & Health: Evidence & Needed Research,” Annual Review of Public Health, 2019]

And if you ever have time, you will really enjoy watching these episodes form Unnatural Causes. For the purposes of our work, I especially recommend the first two 2 episodes:

“Is Inequality Making Us Sick?”

And “When the Bough Breaks”



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.

BEFORE we meet on Friday, I ask you to do at least the 1st 3 things if at all possible: 

*Take Harvard’s implicit bias test (there are several options, choose the “race” one after you click that you want to proceed. You don’t have to report your results during our session – this is just for you)  https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html

& Watch these 3 videos:

*7 min. PBS video on implicit bias in healthcare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qykeMsFNDw

*9 min. & 4 videos – Anderson Cooper 360 – Assumptions & Implicit Bias in children:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPVNJgfDwpw  and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFbvBJULVnc

THEN if you have time, here are some great readings for before (or after) the session:

1.These 3 articles give you more context -- the 1st 2 on the PBS video especially --  you watched above – on provider bias:
