First Friday Forum

November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dr. Nikki Nienhaus, a member of the Ethical Society and a chiropractor, will talk about “Implicit Bias in Healthcare: What it is and what we can do about it.” Nikki works at Jamaa Birth Village, an equal access midwifery clinic serving BIPOC and low-income families in St. Louis. In the course of her work, she has learned much about the different ways in which white people and people of color are treated in the medical field, especially the birthing world. She will discuss her experience as a white woman working in Black spaces, share statistics, and offer suggestions for how white people can help decrease (and hopefully eliminate!) the disparities and discrimination faced by BIPOC in their healthcare experiences. Members and non-members are all welcome. Zoom # 384 422 5785.
