KCUR 89.3

Everyone shares the same biology, but that doesn't mean we all enjoy the same access to unprejudiced medical training, health care or advice. Today, we speak with Dr. Damon Tweedy about being a Black Man in a White Coat in a country where being African-American can be bad for your health. Then, we get a quick recap of results from Tuesday's election in Kansas City, Missouri.

Dr. Damon Tweedy will present 'Race and Medical Education: Narrative Reflections of a Black Doctor' at St. Joseph Medical Center at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, August 9. Visit PracticalBioethics.org for more information.
