Humanism and Healing: Structural racism and its impact on medicine
The 2020-21 GHHS National Initiative hopes to encourage GHHS members to use their leadership roles to start or extend conversations about racism and its impact on medicine/healthcare in their local communities and beyond, to create space for grieving, processing, and bearing witness around this topic, or to take action in one of many powerful ways that humanism can begin to heal.
Many schools and chapters have already begun efforts around the topic of systemic racism and the 2020-21 GHHS National Initiative, Humanism and Healing: Structural racism and its impact on medicine, can act as a portal to honor and extend what is already being done.
GHHS staff encourages our chapters to remind the world that humanity, through the deepest compassion for one another, through personal narratives, education, and promoting accountability, can begin to slowly foster healing.
