We all hold unconscious beliefs or implicit biases about various social identities.
As we collectively work to improve race relations, address injustices, and equip ourselves to move closer toward an anti-racist society, implicit bias trainings are tools that will empower us with the necessary skills, education, knowledge, and ability to contribute to understanding one another.
DMU students, faculty, staff and larger community healthcare providers.
- Recognize race and social determinants as independent factors in health equity.
- List some barriers to health equity, including how racism and social determinants affect health.
- Discuss how implicit bias and stereotyping on the part of providers impacts racial disparities in health care, especially for children.
- Recognize how education on issues of race, racism, and whiteness can help provide a critical race lens for providers.
- Move towards health equity and improve our self-efficacy in treating our patients of color and children from marginalized communities.
