UVA Radiology Keynote Lecture Series: When You Are the Target

UVA Radiology Keynote Lecture Series: When You Are the Target

This event is sponsored by the UVA Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging.

UVA Radiology Keynote Lecture Series:
“When You Are the Target: A Case Study and Expert Panel Discussion on Racism, Bias and Prejudice Against Healthcare Providers”

Panelists: Tracy Downs, MD, Raymond Liu, MD, Sanjay Misra, MD, Kim Penberthy, PhD, and Arturo Saavedra, MD, PhD

Moderated by Dr. Ziv Haskal

Increased recognition of bias against Asian-Americans has further focused Americans on current issues of racism and bias. Beyond considering how such bias may impact their patients’ care, healthcare providers themselves can be the target of ethnic, racial, religious and racist attacks and comments in the workplace, from patients or others.

A panel of national experts will discuss a recent specific case study of patient bias against a health care provider at a major academic institution. The discussion will span issues of patient bias, racism and prejudice toward providers and include practical questions.

This virtual event will take place via WebEx.
