The Faculty of Medicine’s REDI Office presents: Embracing Anti-Racism in Health Care

The Province of BC has officially declared May 23–29, 2023 as Anti-Racism Awareness Week. In collaboration with Providence Health Care and Fraser Health, the REDI Office is organizing a series of events and resources to commemorate this important week and foster anti-racism action across the healthcare sector in BC.

The highlight of the week will be the moderated panel discussion “Embracing Anti-Racism in Health Care” on Thursday, May 25, 12–1:30 pm. The purpose of this panel is to shift the focus from mere awareness of racism to concrete anti-racism actions. The panel discussion will focus on practical ways we can promote anti-racism in our healthcare environments, education, and research.
