Grand Rounds Series: A BPS Approach to Diversity: A Look at Race, Gender, and Disability through a Health Humanities and Equity Lens
The URSMD Office of Equity and Inclusion in partnership with the Division of Medical Humanities & Bioethics and the Paul M. Schyve, MD Center for Bioethics, will launch a new virtual series on diversity in medicine. The series will take a Biopsychosocial (BPS) approach to understand how race, gender, and disability are culturally and socially constructed identities and categories with profound impacts on the health of populations and individuals over generations.

Session 1: “Race and Medicine: Historical and Cultural Context.” Guest lecturer and award-winning author Dorothy Roberts, JD will join us virtually to discuss her book, “Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-First Century.” Roberts, also an activist and scholar, documents the rise of “a new racial politics that relies on re-inventing the political system of race as a biological category written in our genes.”
