The Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics and the Libraries of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio have chosen Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine by Damon Tweedy, MD, JD as the basis for a Community Discussions in Social Justice program. Dr. Tweedy will deliver the Frank Bryant Jr, MD Memorial Lecture in Medical Ethics on April 19 at 12 noon in the Holly Auditorium, followed by a reception and book-signing.

The Briscoe Library will offer two workshops on March 29 to support discussion group leaders and to encourage dialogue about the book. To facilitate attendance, these events will be held at both 12 Noon and at 5:30 PM. They are open to faculty, staff, and students of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, as well as members of the broader community, who are interested in planning a book discussion opportunity.

Community Discussions in Social Justice is a project of The Libraries and the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics. This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
