Stepping Up and Leading in Pursuit of Racial Equity: Research
June 10, 2021
Join Past President of the AAP, Dr. Renee Jenkins; 2021 St. Geme Award Winner, Dr. Fred Rivara; guest speaker, Dr. Tiffani Johnson, Assistant Professor and researcher at UC Davis and the Child Health Advisory Council for an important roundtable conversation on racism in academic pediatrics and its impact on research.
Given the increasing racial/ethnic diversity of children in the U.S., excellence and leadership in pediatric healthcare cannot be achieved without attention to equity and tackling racism as important social determinant of health. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) took a major step in declaring the harms of racism on children and adolescents with well-documented specificity in a 2019 policy statement. Little did they know that the impact of racism on the Covid 19 pandemic victims and the witnessing of the George Floyd murder would ignite a firestorm response in the U.S. and abroad. All of the major medical organizations have now issued statements pledging justice and the importance of dismantling structural/institutional racism. As academic leaders in Pediatrics, it is now important to advance beyond such statements of solidarity towards transforming words into action through clinical practice, medical education, workforce diversity, research, and advocacy. Join us as we begin a dialogue of fierce conversations that will promote meaningful change for leading in pursuit of racial equity.
