Join Dr. Damon Tweedy for a special Martin Luther King Jr. Day presentation on YouTube examining health disparities and race in the time of COVID-19. Dr. Tweedy is the acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine and is a professor at Duke University. He will discuss the topics of race and medicine as they intersect at the center of our national discussion during this historic pandemic.

Dr. Tweedy is a graduate of Duke University School of Medicine and Yale Law School. He completed both his medical internship and psychiatry residency at Duke Hospital. He is currently an associate professor of psychiatry at Duke University School of Medicine and a staff psychiatrist at the Durham Veteran Affairs Health Care System. He has published articles about race and medicine in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and other medical journals. His columns and op-eds have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and various other print publications.

This presentation was made possible by the collaboration of fifteen public libraries in the Bridges Library System: Alice Baker, Brookfield, Butler, Delafield, Dwight Foster, Hartland, Jefferson, Muskego, New Berlin, Oconomowoc, Pewaukee, Town Hall, Watertown, Waukesha, and Whitewater.
