The #PWChat series continued with another engaging conversation on an important topic: minorities in medicine. Jasmine Marcelin, MD, co-hosted the discussion. She is the Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases and the Associate Medical Director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Topics discussed included: results from a survey on patient bias toward doctors and nurses and participants’ experiences directly with, or witnessing, race-based microagressions from patients, colleagues, or support staff and how they handled these situations; what can be done to close the gap across racial/ethnic lines, including resources or support to help negotiate fair pay; what steps are or can be taken within individual organizations to address implicit bias and increase minority representation, and much more!
