The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has recently created a topic page which highlights select articles dealing with race and medicine. The articles have been pulled together with the hope of improving research, public health, patient care and professional training:
“The Race and Medicine collection reflects NEJM’s commitment to understanding and combating racism as a public health and human rights crisis. Our commitment to antiracism includes efforts to educate the medical community about systemic racism, to support Black and other minority physicians and aspiring physicians, and ultimately to improve the care and lives of Black and other minority patients” (NEJM, 2020, para. 1).
Additionally, the NEJM is cosponsoring four webinars in the virtual series, The Impact of Skin Color and Ethnicity on Clinical Diagnosis and Research, which will run from October 28–December 2. The topic of the first webinar is Structural Racism and Racial Bias in Medicine, and will take place on Wednesday, October 28 from 1:00-2:15 PM ET. Registration is available here.
