Anti-Racism and Medicine

This guide is an introduction to resources on Anti-Racism and Medicine from the MCPHS University Library and other online sources.

What's on this page?

This page contains foundational anti-racism literature and resources, including books, articles, article collections, and multimedia.  This is an introduction, not an exhaustive list, and more resources will be added in time. 

Important Note

On this guide we have included some resources that we recommend, but are not available at MCPHS.  For these resources, we have set up the links to redirect to the Boston Public Library, as many members of the MCPHS community are able to use their resources.  If you are not able to use the Boston Public Library, feel free to find these resources at your own library!
