No Longer “Speechless” A Practical Workshop on Responding to Microaggressions in Biomedical Settings

No Longer “Speechless” A Practical Workshop on Responding to Microaggressions in Biomedical Settings

Health inequities based on race, ethnicity, gender, and/or other personal characteristics constitute a public health crisis that has been well documented for decades. These inequities are unlikely to improve until the healthcare workforce leadership reflects the population that it exists to serve. 

In this workshop, Dr. Vonzella Bryant, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine will discuss interpersonal racism in the context of Critical Race Theory and the history of racism in the United States, teach attendees how to employ the LIFT method (Lights on, Impact vs intent, Full stop, Teach) to respond to microaggressions towards learners, patients, and colleagues, and help participants develop strategies to promote uptake of antiracism skills across the entire healthcare team.

Co-sponsored with Brown CME.
