2019 Boyarsky Lecture & Symposium - Advancing an Anti-Racism Curriculum for Health Professional Education: Putting Knowledge into Practice

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 5:45pm to Friday, January 25, 2019 - 1:30pm
  • Conferences and Workshops


Health professional schools increasingly emphasize the role of racial and structural inequities in shaping health outcomes.   But does a factual understanding of the social determinants of health lead practitioners to question unjust social structures?   How do we design curricula that teach students to recognize and challenge racial inequities?  What can history and the humanities add to this conversation?

This symposium will bring together a variety of practitioners and educators who have begun to address these questions at Duke and beyond.   It is designed for faculty and staff who want to find better strategies for meaningful racial equity education for health professionals.  Presentations will highlight recent innovations and roundtables will provide the chance to discuss existing opportunities and challenges.  This symposium will be a time for sharing ideas and developing networks as we explore putting knowledge into practice.
