UC Merced Student Healing Circle: Let's Talk Hope -  November 16th 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Join The Black Girl Doctors for a healing circle as we discuss the complexities of speaking up and speaking out as a Black student during a time of racial reckoning, and while charged with navigating your own path towards successful careers and lives. You'll learn critical skills for buffering the impact of stress and creating more joy, and have the opportunity to share your story, bear witness to the experience of others, and become empowered by the collective spirit that emerges when a culture unites for one purpose— to heal.

UCSF 6-week online course: Combatting Systemic Racism in Health Care - Monday Evenings - October 25 - December 6

Racism and white supremacy are fierce, ever present and challenging forces that are the fabric of the United States from slavery through emancipation, Jim Crow segregation and Civil Rights. They impact the thinking, behavior and actions of individuals and institutions, including professional education and health care. The pernicious nature of racial and ethnic inequities requires a long-term commitment to change through education, systems changes and individual action.

Last year, during the COVID-19 pandemic and reeling from the tragic death of George Floyd, UCSF launched the Anti-Racism Initiative to address the impact of systemic racism on the health, health care and life expectancy of Black, Indigenous and other people of color (BIPOC) communities.

This unique course will feature UCSF leaders of the Anti-Racism Initiative and discuss the impact and opportunity of this work for all.

Registration is $75 for the entire course of $15 for individual sessions. For more information click on this link: Combatting Systemic Racismin Health Care
