  • 2018 Ray Warren Symposium poster for Bitter Pills. All Day: Bitter Pills: Race, Health, and Medicine - 15th Annual Ray Warren Symposium

    How do systems of oppression make people sick? Who has access to healthcare, and whose well-being is prioritized through public health policies? Though science and medicine are often considered neutral and objective, how have culturally created classifications of race shaped biomedical research and clinical practices? How, in turn, does medical science perpetuate racial ideologies? 

    Critical questions like these are at the center of the 15th Annual Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies, which will explore the racialized dimensions of health and medicine in institutions, communities, and individual experiences.
