Race Against Time: A Conversation with Dr. Brian Williams on October 20th

Race Against Time is part of the Health Equity Council’s focus in 2020-2021: to engage physicians on the topic of racism, implicit bias and social inequities that impact access to care, the provision of quality care and injury and disease prevention.  Race Against Time will feature regional and national experts to share insights relative to issues facing the medical community and the communities we serve every day.

The first LACMA’s Health Equity Council is hosting the first “Race Against Time” zoom call on Tuesday, October 20th with Dr. Brian Williams. Dr. Williams is the Associate Professor of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery at the University of Chicago. He graduated from the United States Air Force Academy with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. After six years on active duty, he followed a different call to serve and enrolled at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. After obtaining his medical degree, he completed a general surgery residency at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, and a fellowship in trauma and surgical critical care at Emory University in Atlanta. Dr. Williams is a nationally respected leader in medicine and racism and how racism impacts access to care, quality of care, life, education and more. I hope you will join us!
