Infectious Diseases Section Diversity Equity and Anti-racism Roadmap (ID2EA): Eighth Roadmap Stop

Eight Roadmap Stop

Dr. Damon Tweedy is an assistant professor of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center and a staff physician at the Durham Veteran Affairs Medical Center in North Carolina who has published numerous articles about race and medicine.  His memoir, Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine, was published in 2015 and became a New York Times Bestseller and one of TIME magazine’s top ten non-fiction books of the year.   It is a compelling story about his journey from medical student to attending physician and the many challenges he faced along the way.  He shares openly about how he has dealt with racism and bias.  He joined us on 12/15/21 for our eighth roadmap stop to discuss his book and to engage in a Question and Answer Session.
