Social Mission Alliance calls upon health professions educators, students, and practitioners to acknowledge structural racism as the root cause of inequitable treatment, staggering health disparities, and the unequal distribution of resources.
In an effort to identify the most meaningful pieces, we utilized a guide to identify quality and useful resources based on the following five criteria: credibility of source, application of source across various professions, quality of explanation of the subject, ability of the source to provide a deeper understanding of the subject, and ability of the source to provide actionable next steps.
These resources are a good starting point on structural racism. If there are resources you would like us to consider for this list, please contact us.
