CAPE's first virtual community event series “Being _____ On The Anschutz Medical Campus” proved to be an event our campus needed. This go round of fill in the blank was “BLACK”. We wanted to have a candid conversation about being BLACK in various fields on this campus and in healthcare overall. The panel discussion included Lynette Kelley, FNP from the VA hospital, Robert Franklin from Children's Hospital, Dr. Jackie Ward-Gaines, MD from University of Colorado Hospital and Orlando Mosley, PT Student on CU Anschutz. The event took place on Thursday, December 3rd from 10:30 am – 12:30pm. Stay tuned for the next installation!
“Before I engage in conversations about racism and discuss with colleagues, I request that they read one of these books: So You Want to Talk About Race or White Fragility - Why It’s so Hard for White People to Talk About Racism”
“THANK YOU FOR THIS! #blackatAMCmatters I have to jump off early but wanted to share Information about the Pre-Health Program that Orlando mentioned. It can be found in the new Office of Diversity Equity Inclusion and Community Engagement under Associate Vice Chancellor Dr. Regina Richards (a beautiful Black Woman in Leadership) https://www.cuanschutz.edu/offices/diversity-equity-inclusion-communityGreat job everyone.”
Health Equity Through Culture Sensitivity Simulation Day
On Wednesday, February 17th, we are had our very first Health Equity Through Cultural Sensitivity Simulation Day, an immersive simulation for Emergency Medicine residents. With this experience, our intentions were to help these learners:
• Gain a better understanding how diversity, equity and inclusion impacts health equity
• Reflect on own lack of cultural sensitivity/humility
• Address patients’ social determinants of health
• Examine privilege and structural inequities in patient care settings
These learners were immersed into eight patient scenarios highlighting various diverse communities to reflect the world we live in. From white privilege to language barriers to homelessness, the CAPE has curated an authentic experience sure to yield boundless outcomes.
