Mark your calendars for the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) live webinar, Challenging Race-Based Medicine in Practice, on Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m. This webinar will help learners understand the origins of race-based medicine, the implications of conflating race with genetic ancestry, identify the racist underpinnings of many commonly practiced treatment plans and diagnosed diseases, and set a plan for meaningful change that will help advance true health equity. Registration is open to family physicians, practice teams, residency groups, and medical students.
The webinar will feature a 60-minute presentation from Senior Vice President of Equity and Community Health of Massachusetts General Hospital Joseph Betancourt, MD, MPH, followed by a 30-minute Q&A moderated by OAFP member Roma Amin, MD.
