This session was part of Day one of the 2021 Humanism and Healing Conference: Structural Racism and Its Impact on Medicine, hosted by the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS).
Gold Humanism Honor Society members at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine gathered a series of intriguing first-person stories that embody experiences of racism in medicine, which were read by allies and recorded. Multiple geographically diverse medical schools were also invited to pre-record stories based on the theme of racism in medicine. All these stories have been culminated into one session for this event to hear personal anecdotes and perspectives on different experiences. The session also included a live breakout room session and ended with a live Q&A to further explore this extremely important and relevant topic. Aims: 1) To share the power of storytelling and promote allyship among viewers. 2) To explore different perspectives and experiences that furthers cultural safety.
