do no harm series
Dr. Neecey Hudson, Chair & Science Director at Hood Medicine and Jonathan White, Policy Chair at Hood Medicine
Dr. John Chenault, PhD, MA, MLIS – Hood Medicine Advisory Board Member; Jennifer Johnson Muhammad, MS, MA – Health Advocacy Director at Hood Medicine
In this Do No Harm Series chat, Hood Medicine org members discuss the long history of medical racism, the unethical human torture and experimentation that formed the foundation of modern medicine, and how the scientific community contributed to racist dogma, legislation, and cultural practice based on their “research” on the biological differences between races. We reflect on how the inextricable role of race in medical research and healthcare has influenced contemporary health disparities in BIPOC communities.
