Honoring Black Community Hospitals in the U.S. and Abroad

February 24, 2021
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. PST
Zoom (Virtual)

In honor of Black History Month 2021, we aim to celebrate and reflect upon underserved Black communities’ ongoing resilience in their efforts for health justice, both in the United States and abroad. Join us for a screening of portions of two important documentaries: “The Color of Medicine: The Story of Homer G. Phillips Hospital” and “Revolutionary Medicine: The Story of the First Garifuna Hospital.” After the screening, UCSF medical students from the REPAIR Project Steering Committee and White Coats for Black Lives will facilitate a discussion analyzing the sociopolitical forces and community activism strategies at work in both narratives. 

This discussion will also serve to identify areas of student interest for a new series of teach-ins, beginning April 2021, led by faculty and graduate students from the UCSF Department of Humanities and Social Sciences. These teach-ins are meant to complement and enhance existing graduate and health professional school antiracist curricula and give students a new opportunity to deepen their knowledge and learn strategies to combat racism in healthcare and science. We seek to expand opportunities for antiracist scholar-activism for students in the health professions through collective, student-led curricular development. All graduate and professional students at UCSF and beyond are welcome to join!
