Dr. @nafisseh_warner and Catherine Njathi-Ori and I have presented on microaggressions, what they are, how they may affect us in medicine, and how to have a dialogue about them. @choo_ek rec'd tweetorials with references and claiming your expertise: here's my portion
Microaggresions can be difficult to confront or define: What did they mean by that? They often aren't obvious, like "old fashioned" sexism or racism.
(What's this guy saying? this just begged for a caption. She's not having it.)
What happens when you hear a microaggression? Do you find yourself derailed, are you thinking about it instead of what you are supposed to be focus on? Are you still thinking about it later? Are you still figure out how to respond? It's "intrustive cognition"

1/ So, today was a big day for @DrJRMarcelin and I. We've been developing curricula on "Structural Challenges & Inequities in Healthcare Delivery" for the @UNMCCOM M1 students as part of the Health Systems Science coil.

Thread on this #MedEd project + today's capstone 👇🏾
2/ With inspiration from @JonathanMetzl & Dr. Helena Hanson's work on #StructuralCompetency, we wanted to assemble a pilot set of experiences that would give @UNMC students a glimpse into local health inequities, from historical & community perspectives:
3/ We gave the M1s several introductory lectures & assignments focused on big-picture issues like #SDoH & disparities, creating a "structural DDx" for patients, unconscious #bias & #microaggressions, developing structural humility, and #racism in medicine...

#Academy2019 @AAN_Nursing Keynote on #belonging: Dr. @LisaColemanPhD explains #Diversity (in the room), #Inclusion (being asked to dance), & #Equity (intentional reflection on history & power), & #Belonging: you can disagree about something & you’re still in the group
Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: You can’t have excellence in #innovation *without* #diversity, #inclusion, #equity *AND* #Belonging

Dr. Lin Zhan to Dr. @LisaColemanPhD: How do #nurseleaders acknowledge #implicitbias? Dr. Coleman explains we all have implicit bias. On #microaggressions: Even well-intended words can do harm. #Leaders must assess their own biases AND how they’re operationalized in their orgs.

Y'all can I discuss a #microaggression that occurred last week at an #AWP19 after-party? Because, as I told my co-workers this morning, it is indicative of a continual issue in forward momentum in the industry and in the country.
I also want to note that I was not the only person to witness this event. Another women of color and a friend who identifies as nonbinary and is queer (white) were also right there to witness this.
For those who saw me on Thursday I was wearing the #AccessIsLove t-shirt that @SFdirewolf discussed online. I would highly suggest folks buy one as it's super comfy and really great quality:…

"Race matters in higher education." - Lorelle L. Espinosa (VP for Research at ACE) #EquityMatters

Pretty good way to get the morning started!
Key Finding #1: Our populace is becoming more educated, as well as more racially and ethnically diverse -- driven largely in part by an increase of Hispanic students. #EquityMatters
Unsurprisingly, Black students have higher debt loads and have a lower completion rate for credentials. #EquityMatters

So a thread run down of this year on Foluke's African Skies. Which needs its own twitter account by the way. I run 2 twitter accounts at the moment. One very intermittently. I am not sure I can stretch to 3. But it could happen. This year FAS was all about decolonisation.
It was not surprising that the most-read blog was about decolonisation. Republished from @TC_Africa, written by Morreira and Luckett, it was a very practical approach to decolonisation. Giving teachers 10 questions to ask when considering decolonising.…
But we must not forget that decolonisation is not just about what we teach but is also evidenced by the power and control structures in society. In this article, I explore how this is evidenced in the origins and current practices of the Nigerian Police.…
