  • Dorothy Roberts: The problem with Race-Based Medicine – Dorothy Roberts, law and sociology professor at University of Pennsylvania, has a precise and powerful message: Race-based medicine is bad medicine. Even today, many doctors still use race as a medical shortcut; they make important decisions about things like pain tolerance based on a patient's skin color instead of medical observation and measurement. In this searing talk, Roberts lays out the lingering traces of race-based medicine — and invites us to be a part of ending it. "It is more urgent than ever to finally abandon this backward legacy," she says, "and to affirm our common humanity by ending the social inequalities that truly divide us." The article, Medical Schools are Slowly Starting to Integrate More Teaching about Race into Their Curricula (PDF), examines how Minnesota physician, Dr. Brooke Cunningham, is teaching students to think about race as a system of social stratification, not a biologically valid category.
