Chika Oriuwa | Courageous Conversations: Racism in Medicine

How does someone define themselves after being accused of lying for simply having aspirations to become a physician? You graduate at the top of the U of T, Faculty of Medicine, Class of 2020 and be the valedictorian. In her first year of medicine, there were 259 students, and Chika was the only black student. She had to constantly re-define herself to balance being accepted as well as lead forward her advocacy for change. In this session, John and Dr. Oriuwa talk about how race plays a part in medicine, and what you can do to be either breakthrough fear, or be an ally to be a beacon of light for equality.
