Dr. Jones defines racism as a system of structuring opportunity and assigning value based on the social interpretation of how one looks, which is what we call “race”. She uses allegory to spark conversation on “race” and racism topics that are often difficult for many people to understand or discuss in our teaching.
Yale faculty, alumni, fellows, residents, students and staff are welcome to attend. This conference is free and open to everyone from the Schools of Nursing and Medicine, including the Physician Associate Program.
