June 17 2021 — Presence for Racial Justice in Healthcare

Racial disparities observed during the COVID-19 pandemic have drawn renewed attention to health-care inequities in the United States and around the world. Since its inception, the Presence Center at Stanford Medicine has made addressing racial justice in health care a priority.

Attendees joined Drs. Abraham Verghese, Hannah Valantine, and other distinguished leaders to learn about the contributions the Presence Center is making to deepen clinician-patient relationships within diverse populations, address racial biases and racism in clinical care, and develop partnerships with historically Black universities and colleges and clinics serving predominantly Black patients.
