• Racism & Sickle Cell / Racism in Healthcare

    Posted by Michael Quadri on December 8, 2022 at 9:00 am

    There has always been a huge conversation surrounding the treatment of sickle cell patients and it has been a prominent topic within the community for a very long time.

    As we know sickle cell predominantly affects the Black community, and with this racial profiling and misdiagnosis have been very common.

    A 2016 study found many white medical students wrongly believe Black people have a higher pain tolerance than white people. Of all the participants, 73% held at least one false belief about the biological differences between races.

    Have you experienced racism within a healthcare setting?
