Take Racism Out of Healthcare!

July 31 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

The system isn’t broken. It is working the way it was designed to work. For years now we have heard about the poor access to medical care that Black and Brown families are subjected to. We talk about the price of healthcare and how unaffordable it is for black and brown communities.
We also hear about maternal mortality cases increasing particularly in communities of color, particularly with black women.
But have you ever asked yourself why?
How being black or brown puts us at a higher risk of being dismissed, incorrectly treated or with a wrong diagnosis or even a wrong prognosis, regardless of income.
Serena Williams, an amazing and world renowned tennis player, almost joined this statistic when she gave birth to her daughter, Olympia.
Join us in a conversation to talk about the racial bias that still exists within the medical community, and what we can do to help take racism out of healthcare!
