Challenges in Black & Indigenous Health Care
Created by BPL_staff_older_adults | 13 items
If you are a person of colour, Black, or Indigenous, your race can greatly affect your health care. The harm caused by male bias in medical research has been proven but the harm caused by racial bias in medical research and health care is only now being acknowledged. The colourblind approach to medicine is being challenged. These books outline the history of the racial gap in health care and how it can harm you. Armed with this knowledge, you can be a better advocate for yourself in your own health care journey.
