This session will discuss how racism in medicine is a driver of health inequities and the effect that this has on the social determinants of health. A TED Health podcast has been selected. The 28-minute podcast features Heather McGhee, author of the book, “The Sum of Us.” In this TED Health talk from August 2022, she provides a foundation for racism as a threat in medicine. This is followed by a conversation with Shoshana Ungerleider MD, host of the TED Health podcast and Aletha Maybank MD MPH, who currently serves as the chief health equity officer and senior vice president for the American Medical Association (AMA).
