Thank you to all who have engaged with and participated in this timely and essential discussion!
On this last day, we look forward toward the future of medicine and the place the topic of 'racism and medicine' holds in the greater movement for racial and social justice. In her 2018 talk with Krista Tippett on the podcast ‘On Being’, Zen priest Rev. angel Kyodo williams, in reference to the protests for social justice of that year, urged audiences to “imagine and nourish the transformative potential of [the] moment.” Two years later, we observe a pandemic disproportionately ravaging communities of color while images of black people being killed remain strewn across our screens and recent memories.
The challenge of any movement is establishing a system for sustainability. How can we ensure that medicine continues to struggle and reckon with the components of our field rooted in racism, ever progressing forward in a process of positive transformation? Against relentless resistance and the threat of fatiguability, how do we continue to do the work?
