Doctors often have implicit, subconscious preferences for white patients over those of color, studies show. This is implicit bias. These biases — stereotypes that affect our understanding and decisions about others beyond our conscious control — lead to discrimination and health disparities.
This webinar will feature guest speakers to help health care professionals understand implicit bias, “rewire” it toward compassion for patients and research participants of color and engage local leaders in implementing implicit bias training on a greater scale.
Panelists Dr. Chiquita Collins, vice president for diversity, equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer at UT Health San Antonio, Dr. Jabraan Pasha, physician and CEO of Unlocking Implicit Bias, Loriana Hernandez-Aldama, cancer survivor and journalist, and Rachel Israel, Director of Regional Patient Advocacy Relations for Genentech, will partake in a discussion moderated by Dr. Amelie G. Ramirez, director of Salud America! and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.
A question-and-answer session will follow.
This webinar is part of a six-webinar series, “Let’s Address Health Equity Together,” conducted in collaboration with the Salud America!, program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio, the Mays Cancer Center at UT Health San Antonio, and Genentech.
