Discussion led by Dr. Desiree Harding
The Implicit Bias in Medicine Series will highlight the detrimental impact that both conscious and unconscious bias have on the healthcare community through a series of virtual panels hosted by experts in the field. We hope to expose current undergraduate students interested in entering or learning about the field of healthcare to these issues of bias and in turn, students will gain a greater understanding of the extent of bias in healthcare and learn to grapple with their own biases.
The first panel in the series is hosted by URSHAC and UR HPO and features Harding, a clinical psychologist and behavioral health consultant, who will discuss how mental illness has been stigmatized in the healthcare community.
