#IAMSECafe Welcomes Staci Leisman for “Teaching Race & Medicine”

Stay connected with your colleagues around the globe and join us for this week’s IAMSE Cafe round table discussion. Join our host, Kelly Quesnelle from Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine as she welcomes Staci Leisman (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY, USA). Tuesday, November 3, 2020 at 10AM ET – Teaching Race and Medicine: Unlearning what we think we know. Race has often been taught as a risk factor for disease, despite race being a social, not a biological, construct. Instead, we should focus on how racism and ancestry impacts health and disease and the inclusion of social determinants of health in pathophysiology. To join the meeting please click here.
