About this event

The Role of Science and Medical Schools in Propagating Racism in Medicine - A Lecture by Dorothy Roberts

The Medical Humanities, Arts, and Ethics Series

Dorothy Roberts is an acclaimed scholar whose pathbreaking work in law and public policy focuses on urgent contemporary issues in health, social justice, and bioethics. Her scholarship, which shows how biological ideologies about race, structural inequities, and individual biases work together to promote racial injustice, has been recognized with the American Psychiatric Association’s 2015 Solomon Carter Fuller Award and the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Family Planning, and by her election to the National Academy of Medicine in 2017. Casting a critical eye on the malign-but-often-overlooked effects that respected, liberal institutions can have, Roberts will address how racism in medicine is fostered by science and medical schools.
