YWCA Book Club: Just Medicine: A Cure For Racial Inequality In American Health Care

On Thursday, August 20 from 6:00 – 7:30pm we’ll be meeting (virtually) to discuss Dayna Bowen Matthew’ Just Medicine: A Cure For Racial Inequality In American Health Care.

This book offers an innovative plan to eliminate inequalities in the American health care and save the lives they endanger.

“Over 84,000 black and brown lives are needlessly lost each year due to health disparities: the unfair, unjust, and avoidable differences between the quality and quantity of health care provided to Americans who are members of racial and ethnic minorities and care provided to whites. Health disparities have remained stubbornly entrenched in the American health care system—and in Just Medicine Dayna Bowen Matthew finds that they principally arise from unconscious racial and ethnic biases held by physicians, institutional providers, and their patients.”

This book club meeting will be occurring virtually via Zoom. We will send out the link and log in information two days prior to the book club meeting.
