From Eugenics to Your Doctor's Office: the dangers of race-based medicine

Next time you say race is a risk factor, don't. On this week's episode we'll be diving into topics such as race based correction factors in modern medicine, the move from eugenics to race based medicine, and racial disparities in the COVID-19 pandemic. Scientists have long known that race is not biological, yet, it is still used as a basis for so many medical procedures and diagnoses. This reliance on race as a risk factor, rather than racism, is a vestige from eugenics embedded within our medical system which perpetuates disparities and inequity among minoritized people; particularly black people. We encourage you to check out the additional resources about these topics on our website where you can also find the transcript for this episode: donoharmhrk.wordpress.com.
