This guide provides resources for health sciences faculty and staff who are looking to facilitate classroom or workplace discussions and activities about race and efforts to eliminate racism and inequalities. This is a select list of resources recommended by faculty and staff at OSU as well as by professional health organizations or institutions.
We denounce racism of all forms. It is a social determinant of health that is damaging to our community, patients, faculty, staff and trainees. Acknowledging this is a foundation for structural and systemic change toward equity in health and well-being. Yet this is only the first step. The next step is action–improving our education, engagement, funding, policies and practices to accelerate this journey.
