Medical Ethics Reality Forum (MERF) is continuing our weekly Friday night series, PubMed Ethics which occurs every Friday at 6:00PM through the end of May. Please join us this week for a discussion of the ethics surrounding racial and ethnic healthcare disparities as they related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the larger picture of healthcare in America. We are pleased to be able to collaborate with the Student Diversity Advisory Committee (SDAC) for this discussion and would love to have as many people join and share their thoughts, opinions, and experiences with racial and ethinic healthcare disparities. Please make sure to fill out our weekly pre-discussion poll before the event!
