Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine


A discussion facilitated by physicians and community leaders with moderation by student leaders of the Student National Medical Association, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association and the Refugee and Immigrant Medical Association.

The event will provide the opportunity for participants to engage in small-group discussions of recent events including, but not limited to, the Black Lives Matter movement, police brutality, and anti-Asian sentiment due to COVID-19. Another small-group discussion will concentrate on how racism affects us as future physicians and our patient care, examining topics such as implicit biases, cultural/structural competency, and the role that physicians have in mitigating racism and processing trauma.

The event is to VTCSOM and TBMH students. For more information and to register, please contact Karyna Nevarez.
