Course Details

The Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP), Twin Cities Medical Society, Minnesota Medical Association and Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics co-hosted an important conversation on the use of race in medicine and medical decision making on August 25, 2020. This live panel discussion, which was recorded, was built on a race-based medicine presentation from the MAFP Virtual Refresher, What’s Race Got to Do With It? The Use of Race in Medical Decision-Making and Clinical Care.

The MAFP is making both recordings available at no cost.

The “Strategies for Critically Evaluating the Use of Race in Medical Decision-Making” questions in this presentation were adapted from the work of Dr. Brooke Cunningham, and the acknowledgement of work attribution was inadvertently omitted in the final version of the slide deck.
