Race and Racism in Health Care

About this Page

The Race and Racism in Health Care page brings together resources for the purpose of educating and raising awareness on this important topic as it relates to health care. Additionally, we offer some useful tools and search tips for you to explore race in your own research.

This page was compiled by Cushing/Whitney Medical Library staff. We are a group of white, female librarians. While we have done our best to include perspectives of our Black, Brown, Asian, Hispanic, and Indigenous community members, we recognize there may still be implicit bias. We would be much obliged for suggestions on how we can make improvements. 

For recommendations on additional resources, questions, or concerns, contact Courtney Brombosz, Research and Education Librarian  (courtney.brombosz@yale.edu)
