Virtual Conversations in Justice and Equity in Bioethics Part 3 of 3 – Racism and Health Equity: Why Does it Matter in Bioethics?

The year of 2020 has brought forth ethical challenges to our health care system in unimaginable ways. The murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor cast a spotlight on the impact of racism in society. We will shine that spotlight on racism, bioethics and the effects of structural justice on health, with a particular focus on the impact in Northern New England.
