We are working to better fund primary care so there is equal access for all and I am working to change the pipeline to get more physicians who don’t look like me.

Practicing in Yakima I saw, especially in the hospital setting and around maternity care different levels of care and attention for Latin-x patients, especially those who did not speak English. I do have to commend WA state for covering all maternal patients no matter their immigration status - that helped reduce significant disparities in care.

Hi Dr. Opara I sent them to your email.

Has the AAFP considered reviewing all presenter's slides to ask for the presenter to remove content that is erroneously race based? The easiest example would be eliminating race in the calculation of EGFR in a presentation on CKD. Or taking race out of the calculation on a calculation of likelihood of VBAC success.
Andrew Wei
46:02
I am glad to hear the AAFP is opposed to race-based medicine; how do we encourage other professional medical organizations to do the same or maybe better yet, could we consider advocating for legislative policy that would require elimination of these race-based calculators / clinical algorithms that may perpetuate inequity?
Mindy

We need to commit to advocating for concrete steps to have more diverse physician work force and also in leadership and academia
Mindy

What is AAFP's stance on Medicare for All? Since racism and poverty are so intertwined, I don't think we can have equity without universal healthcare. I am also curious to hear of WAFP's stance on both Medicare for All as well as universal state coverage and if there is any advocacy currently happening around this.

I Started to explore the striking impact of COVID-19 on Italians in Italy and the US and encountered a similar vulnerability of Iranians. Then the high incidence of G6PD deficiency of both populations came to light as a possible clue to their vulnerability. THEN the incidence of G6PD deficiency in African Americans came to light. If there is anything to this clue to vulnerability, it would be obscured by purging racial or national categories of demographics. Thoughts?
JEREMIA BERNHARDT

Our residency has decided that antiracism education is as critical as any medical CME we do and pays for antiracism education with CME dollars. I'd like to see the WAFP offer scholarship for members to attend antiracism education when their workplaces do not pay for that education with their CME dollars

Family Physicians are devoted to patient-centered care. After we do the hard work of eliminating Race-based assumptions from medical dx and tx, how do we best collect what might be useful information about patient background, culture, diet, behavior and genetic background.
David & Jonathan Wells
01:00:52
You can still ask about family histories so not sure why there is a sudden lack of know-how or data collection, particularly when we are not in a place where we can offer personalized genomics?
William R Phillips
01:00:54
Gerald’s question is similar to mine.
Carla Ainsworth
01:04:19
Programs like the WAFP Foundation Leadership 2020 program would potentially have offered an opportunity for individuals to seek funding for antiracism training. The Foundation is looking at other ways to support antiracism efforts along with the WAFP.

Sorry, Vision 2020 program that we were funding last year https://wafp.net/wafp-foundation/vision-2020

thanks, Dr. Jones, and everyone for an excellent conversation. sorry i have to go early! nice to see your faces on zoom:)
RUSSELL
01:06:10
Yes, I think this is a great role for the foundation to take on!
Andrew Wei
01:10:43
Similar to Dr. Bernhardt's request, how can we advocate for having anti-racism education and advocacy skills be a core competency that all family medicine residents must graduate with? I'm also curious if AAFP has looked beyond social determinants of health teaching and into structural competency (https://www.structcomp.org/).
JEREMIA BERNHARDT
01:11:50
We need to be sure that the focus is not just on the education of medical students and residents. Practicing physicians needs this education. We all did not get it when we were in school!
Andrew Wei
01:12:06
^agreed :)

Danielle Jones – Is the effort to address racism and implicit bias recognizing the need to achieve HEALTH LITERACY?

I'd like to see antiracism workshops for our BOD and committee members
JEREMIA BERNHARDT
01:25:40
racial caucusing groups within the WAFP would also be useful

We have a strategic planning meeting coming up. Committing to antiracism work ought to be a pillar in our upcoming strategic plan
