Using Critical Race Theory to develop new curriculum addressing anti-Black racism: BHEC

Researchers from the Black Health Education Collaborative (BHEC) have published a new article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal discussing the importance and process of integrating Critical Race Theory into education and into medical and clinical settings. The authors write that since anti-Black racism affects all Black people in Canada, medical, public health, and health professional education should include Critical Race Theory to enhance the health of Black people and address systemic racism. They also discuss the establishment of the BHEC in response to Canada’s medical education system’s insufficient response to the health inequities that Black communities experience, as well as the consortium’s work on a curriculum on anti-Black racism and health that will disrupt anti-Black racism.
