In the aftermath of Ferguson, we in the medical community seek to look inward at the existence and persistence of racism in healthcare. Join us Tuesday September 9th at 5:30pm for the next CHAT (Community Health and Advocacy Talks) as we welcome Dr. Stephen Nelson, a pediatric hematologist out of Children’s Hospital, for a discussion on racism in medicine.
