Critical Race Theory and Medicine: Upfront and Personal

Critical race theory (CRT) has academic roots in the 1970 s. Tenets of CRT include race as a social construct and emphasis on structural analyses of racial inequities. Narration is seminal to the CRT approach. Similarly, focus has recently turned to policy, institutions and social forces as causes for racial disparities in heath and medicine. In this talk I will narrate one families journey in medicine to illustrate the usefulness of CRT.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
