On most measures of medical outcomes, American patients do better if they’re white. Physicians, nurses and other health care professionals work in an environment which, despite their good intentions, produces racial disparities in outcomes. Both the Oregon Medical Association and American Medical Association recently released statements advocating physician leadership in achieving change to our health care system. This is the first time a state or national physician organization specifically identified institutionalized racism and called on physicians to act. How can health care professionals reduce racial disparities in outcomes for all patients, not just their own? The authors of the OMA statement on racism and the president of the AMA will discuss this challenge for physicians. Prepared remarks will last approximately 40 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of audience Q&A. Your registration information may be shared on a limited basis with event partners.
