Dr. Bullock’s discussion makes me think of this story that I heard a few days ago that was a helpful historical perspective: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/03/23/974059870/stop-blaming-tuskegee-critics-say-its-not-an-excuse-for-current-medical-racism
Dr. Bullock really lead the charge to update the NASW Code of Ethics and the part about Cultural Competence. Be on the lookout for the updates to the NASW Code of Ethics soon
Great resource for personal educations: Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla Saad.
There is also a podcast called “The Clinical Problem Solvers” that has a series called Antiracism in Medicine. It is a wonderful resource for many of us to gain perspective.
Other great podcasts include “It comes with Living” hosted by a palliative and oncology APHSW-C and LCSW; “Grief Out Loud” from The Dougy Center, a pediatric bereavement Center in OR, and GeriPal, a palliative care blog and podcast.
