Nearly 1.3 million persons in the United States will enter menopause this year. However, equitable management of menopausal symptoms remains a problem. Most notably, African-American/Black persons in the United States are less likely to be treated for symptoms that adversely affect quality of life and have longstanding deleterious consequences on overall health. Implicit bias and racism are well established factors that contribute to these disparities.
As a diversity, equity, and inclusion champion, I have created a transformative course, “Disrupt the Status Quo: Mitigating Bias in the Delivery of Midlife/Menopause Healthcare,” to empower clinicians to deliver the highest quality care for all persons in midlife. How do we accomplish this? By directly shifting our mindsets, challenging our medical training that perpetuates bias, and start anew by committing to “do no harm.”
CME accredited course coming soon.
