Harvard Professor Augustus White III: Surgeon, Author & Health Equity Pioneer.

Professor Augustus “Gus” White III didn’t just pioneer the understanding of unconscious bias through research methodology during his illustrious career as an orthopedic surgeon. The author of “Overcoming” & “Seeing Patients” has also spent a lifetime fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion wherever he has worked, often by emphasizing our common humanity – his use of the term “fellow humans” to start speeches has become legendary. In today’s discussion he shares the origin of that phrase, explores some of the themes around structural racism, sexism and -isms in medicine, and explains why embracing diversity and inclusion is part of the solution. Featuring podcast host Dr. Bonnie Mason Simpson. This is a replay of an early podcast from the series, now re-released to a wider audience.
