The Lane Medical Library is pleased to announce the second meeting of the Antiracism Book Club to the Stanford community.

Hosted by Suzette Shipp, Life Science Technologist in the Lorry Lokey Stem Cell Research Building, this new, media-based discussion group aims to examine the structural racialized bias in medicine, medical research, and health care delivery. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ by the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The second meeting of the book club starts at noon on August 21, 2020, with a discussion of short readings and videos on the fallout from medical racism. We’ve included an optional book for those who want to delve into the theme of the fallout from medical racism through a longer narrative format: What the Eyes Don’t See by Mona Hanna-Attisha.

We invite you to read, listen, engage, and learn. Please join us via Zoom,  and we encourage you to participate via our Stanford Slack Workspace “antiracismbookclub” if you are unable to attend or want to keep the conversation going. Everyone is welcome to attend the second session, whether or not you were able to join our first meeting.
