Discussion Series Will Examine Bias in Healthcare
Kate Martin | March 26, 2012
Don't miss the kick off event March 28.
Student Affairs, the Dignity and Respect Campaign, NARTS, and the Campus Commission for Diversity and Inclusion are working together to bring a series of monthly conversations campus about bias in healthcare. The Life in the Fishbowl: Conversations about Bias in Healthcare events are open to the entire campus - students, faculty and staff from all disciplines.
The goal is to create dialogue across campus about a variety of topics. The intention with each program is ultimately to bring the conversation back to health care and what students should take away as future health care providers.
The series will kick off on Wednesday March 28 at noon in Room L6. The conversation will explore what bias is, how it affects patients and health care providers, and the differences between bias and worldview.
Life in the Fishbowl conversations will be held monthly during the first three months of each term, starting in May. All sessions are at noon in Room L6. The topics and dates for the summer trimester are:
- May 9: Interdisciplinary Bias
- June 13: Mental Health
- July 11: Immigrants in Health Care
