Antiracism Book Club


Quote about the disparity regarding the health of blacks with a long list of names of black medical victims


This is a media-based discussion group geared toward Stanford Health affiliates, students, staff, and faculty. We meet once a month to explore issues relevant to racism in medicine through the written word and videos. We are always open to new members.

This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ by the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Feel free to join our Stanford Slack workspace, Antiracismbookclub, to submit your thoughts and questions for the group. If you are unable to attend, you can always use the channel to contribute to the discussion. Register to receive emails about upcoming discussion groups from Lane Medical Library.
