      Abstract

      There are many false race-based myths concerning the history of man’s culture, civilization and modern medicine that are believed and taught even today. Today, these myths are being perpetuated, intentionally or unintentionally, in our universities and lower educational systems — and are therefore fostering misunderstandings that hinder resolving the issue of race and racism that is pervasive in American society. You will hear a provocative yet historic and evidenced-based presentation designed to further your understanding on the impact that racism had and still has in medicine.
