Race Matters: Addressing Racism As a Health Issue
- Bryan Johnston, MD | Assistant Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Family & Community Medicine
- Veneshia McKinney-Whitson, MD | Assistant Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Family & Community Medicine
- Chizelle Rush, MD | Family Medicine Resident Physician, Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals

Our team of family physicians have conducted a healthcare provider-focused anti-racism education program since 2017. Through didactics, small group breakouts, personal stories from presenters and insights from a community panel, participants learn and discuss how racism influences health, explore implicit biases and their impact on the care we provide, describe healthcare provider role in addressing racism as a health issue and discuss some of the challenges and barriers faced when doing so. In this session presenters will share program description and outcomes, guide audience through an implicit bias activity, reflect on lessons learned and engage with audience questions and comments.
Trauma is REAL: Understanding and Interrupting Microaggressions and Their Impact on Social Determinants of Health
- Vicki T, Sapp, PhD | Director Student Engagement, Diversity, and Inclusion & Assistant Professor | Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine
- Rhonda Dailey, MD | Assistant Professor, Behavioral Sciences Division Department of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences and Scientific Director, Office of Community Engaged Research (OCEnR) | Wayne State University School of Medicine

Facilitators will utilize the social determinants of health framework to demonstrate the effects of implicit bias on daily life. In this workshop, participants will: interact with others in a no blame, shame, or guilt environment; receive pre and post assessments to measure knowledge and awareness of bias; be encouraged to voluntarily participate in low, medium, and high-risk activities; and be equipped with tools to transform their own experiences with bias. The workshop’s goals are to provide a space for participants to examine their own and others biases, elicit awareness, and positively impact their attitudes, actions, and behaviors to mitigate bias.
Accelerating a Social Mission Research Agenda
- Clese Erikson, MPAff | Deputy Director, Health Workforce Research Center on Health Equity in Health Professions Education and Training, Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity, George Washington University
- Margaret Ziemann | Senior Research Associate, Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity, George Washington University
Social mission research (SMR) is research focused on health professions training programs’ contribution to advancing health equity and addressing health disparities. In this workshop, we will utilize a collaborative approach to developing a roadmap for accelerating a SMR agenda with a particular focus on outcomes related to preparing the healthcare workforce to identify, understand and address social determinants of health. The workshop will begin with a brief overview of SMR to date and then quickly turn to a highly interactive, solutions-oriented group discussion on how to address persistent evidence gaps and accelerate SMR.
