Bowel Sounds Ep. 11: Valeria Cohran & Conrad Cole – Racism in Medicine

In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Drs. Jenn Lee, Peter Lu and Jason Silverman talk to Dr. Valeria Cohran and Dr. Conrad Cole, two of the Chairs of the NASPGHAN Diversity Special Interest Group, about racism in medicine.  The movement to recognize and address structural racism over the past few weeks has made it clear that racism permeates into every aspect of our society, including medicine.  We talk to Drs. Cohran and Cole about how racism affects both our patients and the healthcare community.  We also discuss steps we can each take to recognize the biases we have and to take action against the influence that racism has had on the healthcare system.
