Racism impacts every facet of our society, from education to job opportunities to housing and everything in between. The injustices experienced by people of color are undeniable and inexcusable, and we all know the healthcare industry is not immune.

Whether it’s withholding pain medication for those who need it because of racial bias, the lack of diversity among physicians, or how structural racism has created health inequity, which impacts current treatment amid a pandemic — we, as the healthcare community, must do better.

Below are past episodes of What2Know that feature guests who champion racial equity in healthcare, in workplaces, and in education. I encourage you to listen, learn, and act.
