As more people are vaccinated and our communities reopen, we can all start to wonder how health care will change after the pandemic ends. Join us on June 5 for a discussion with Shantanu Nundy, MD, author of “Care After COVID: What the Pandemic Revealed Is Broken in Healthcare and How to Reinvent It,” and a panel of AMA experts as we explore what health care advocacy, equity, innovation and outcomes will look like in our post-pandemic world.

African, Black, and Caribbean voices: Patient narratives as a means to counter racism and unconscious bias in medicine
June 6, 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m. (during the APS meeting)
Join the AMA Academic Physicians Section (APS) and MAS for a live session to explore narratives from underserved populations, in particular African, Black and Caribbean patients, demonstrating their experiences of systemic racism, bias, prejudice and stereotyping in their interactions with the health care system. Academic physicians and all others interested in progress towards health equity will gain insights into improving trust within the patient-physician relationship and expanding individual stories to actions combating health disparities at the systemic level.
