Racial Equity Reading Group

NEXT MEETING will be Wednesday, January 27, 2021, online
To join please email tara@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.

Wednesday, January 27, 2021: Articles for discussion will be posted soon.

Books for future discussions include:

Past discussions covered the following:

November 2020: Articles on the use of race in clinical algorithms.
