    To accelerate efforts to address harmful bias and eliminate discrimination within health professions learning environments, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation convened more than 40 health professions education leaders, faculty, and students to map a path forward. The recommendations provide a roadmap to help health professions schools and clinical practice sites take action on equity, diversity, and inclusion to ensure a better future for our patients and for the next generation of health care providers.

    Join us for an in-depth discussion of the recommendations and action steps that health professions educators, health care system leaders, doctors, nurses, and students can take to address this issue.
