Racism Awareness Week is a weeklong event dedicated to bringing awareness to the current racial issues in society as they relate to medicine. The goal is to open discussions regarding history, current events, and how we can progress in the future.
The College of Medicine will present a talk by David Satcher, who has dedicated his life to improving public health policy and eliminating health disparities through his leadership as the 16th Surgeon General of the United States, 13th director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and founding director of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine.
Satcher will discuss the role of student activism in achieving racial justice and health equity and connect the dots between student civil rights activism in the 1950s and 1960s with student activism for racial justice in the 21st century.
