Racism in Medicine: Anti-Racist Tools of Action

Over the last year, there has been a lot of challenges with Race and Social Inequity.  We are committed to providing our clinical students and workforce with learning that will educate and lead to more culturally competent care.  A need was identified for available education for our community and with the assistance of Dr. Joseph Losee and a group of UPMC physicians, that need is now met.
