In this episode, we sat down with Dr. Clyde Yancy — Vice Dean for Diversity & Inclusion and Chief of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (NUFSM).
In our discussion we covered the dangers of implicit bias in healthcare, addressing inequities in academic medical institutions, and how Dr. Yancy’s upbringing and experience has informed his research and practice.
