In this presentation, Dr. Vanessa Northington Gamble will provide an historical overview of racial and ethnic disparities in health care. She will also examine why these disparities are a bioethics issue and what bioethicists can do to address them. Dr. Gamble will also analyze the absence of discussions of race and racism in contemporary bioethics and the consequences of this absence.
