EVENTS

SF Bay PSR’s events series will start again in 2021. Till then, please enjoy this selection of educational opportunities offered by PSR members. Our events are open to everyone (not just physicians).

Racial Equity Reading Group

NEXT MEETING TBA, online
To join please email info@sfbaypsr.org.  Non-physicians are welcome!

You’re invited! SF Bay PSR has launched an informal reading and discussion group to learn more about issues of racial equity, particularly as they relate to the fields of public health and medicine. We read a different book every 4-6 weeks, followed by a 90-minute discussion on Zoom. This online, drop-in group is open to anyone (not just physicians) seeking to deepen their personal understanding of issues related to systemic racism and strengthen their commitment toward creating a more just, equitable, and healthy world.

The conversations will be co-facilitated by SF Bay PSR Board Member Dr. Sarah Coates and Executive Director Randall Miller.

Books for future discussions include:

Please consider purchasing books from your local bookstore to help protect creative diversity, or via Bookshop.org which gives a percentage of every sale back to independent bookstores. Some books are available directly from the publisher.
