CIPhER Seminar Series: Grappling with Nuance of Integrating Race and Gender into Health Science Education
October 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Our latest CIPhER Seminar Series: Grappling with Nuance of Integrating Race and Gender into Health Science Education will be held Tuesday, October 4, 2022 from 12pm – 1pm via Zoom.
This seminar is designed to provide faculty with an opportunity to navigate and clarify the complexities of integrating race and gender into the teaching of health science students. Both race and gender are socially defined concepts but have a very real impact on health and health care. Misrepresentations of race and gender are common in guidelines, textbooks, and other teaching materials and often stem from equating social constructs to biologic imperatives. Updating and addressing content to integrate the full complexity can initially be overwhelming. This session will help to empower faculty to be reflective and reflexive regarding the nuances of incorporating race and gender into all aspects of the curriculum.
This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Organizational Diversity and Inclusion and UNC Medical Center Department of Pharmacy and led by Victoria Luna B. Grieve and Lauren Junkman.
At the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Identify and discuss ways that “race” and “gender” are often misrepresented in health care education and practice.
- Differentiate strategies for integrating discussions of race and gender into various health education settings (cases, lectures, examinations).
- Develop a strategy to be reflective and reflexive regarding the incorporation of race and gender into teaching.
Target Audience: This program is designed for all faculty, preceptors, staff, trainees, and students.
