Anti-Black Racism, Health & Health Care
A new report calls on the field of bioethics to take the lead in efforts to remedy racial injustice and health inequities in the United States. As ethicists concerned with health and health care issues–particularly the influence of structures, policies, practices, and norms on conditions that unfairly advantage some and disadvantage others throughout society–the field has a moral responsibility to respond to the longstanding harms that racism has posed to the overall health and well-being of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color.

Join the editors of the report, “A Critical Moment in Bioethics: Reckoning with Anti-Black Racism Through Intergenerational Dialogue,” for a virtual discussion with Michele Goodwin, Chancellor's Professor and Director, Center for Biotechnology & Global Health Policy, University of California, Irvine School of Law.

Report editors are: Faith E. Fletcher, Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Baylor College of Medicine; Keisha S. Ray, McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics at the University of Texas Health Science Center; Virginia A. Brown, Department of Population Health, University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School; and Patrick T. Smith, Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities, and History of Medicine, Duke University.

The special report represents a collaboration between an independent antiracism task force of bioethicists from across the United States and The Hastings Center, as part of the Center’s health equity initiative.

The event is sponsored by the Greenwall Foundation.
