Who are you celebrating today?
“I can count on likely 1 hand the number of Black radiologists in Ontario. Black people, and several other racialized minorities, are underrepresented in medicine. For some people, being seen by someone with a shared experience — like their country of origin, religion or race— really helps in their therapeutic bond, or willingness to seek out help.” - #UofTMed’s Dr. Neil Isaac
“Whenever I’m involved in the care of someone who might be marginalized because of sociocultural factors, I always try to be an advocate for their concerns. I also regularly try to consider my own biases and how it affects the care provided.” - #UofTMed internal medicine resident Ayodele Odutayo
