In partnership with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and a professional diversity speaker, the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) has created the highly interactive, virtual program Building Cultural Intelligence to Breakdown Racism. Set for Wednesday, September 30, this program will not only address racism as a public health crisis but will also systematically train participants to improve their cultural intelligence. The event will provide physicians and other health care professionals with a space to have conversations about racism by reflecting on gaps in awareness of cultures, traditions, and ethnicities, and then take the powerful steps toward personal improvement.
After the conclusion of the program, participants will be invited to keep the conversation moving forward by opting into the OAFP’s first ever Racial Equity Book Club. The club will meet monthly during a weeknight via Zoom. A physician volunteer will facilitate the discussion by using guided questions to help readers share their personal reflections of the book being reviewed.
