    Hosted by IC's Biology Department. Here is the Zoom.
    As future health professionals, it is incredibly important for us to acknowledge the intersection of racism and healthcare. I encourage you to attend this workshop if possible because it is a good first step to understanding how to approach biases and microaggressions in your everyday life. If we allow ourselves to learn, we can be the change.
