Scope and content:

Includes the Duke University School of Medicine's (DUSOM) "Turning a Moment into a Movement: Dismantling Racism in the Duke School of Medicine and Beyond" video and closed caption files (6/16/2020; duration: 00:59:22). This is affiliated with the larger Duke University Heath System's Moments to Movement (M2M), Duke Health's collective stand against systemic racism and injustice. In the video, Dean Mary Klotman, MD, outlines the goals for dismantling racism at Duke University School of Medicine by centering the DUSOM's mission in the current social context of race and racism, positioning race equity as a core priority across the school's tripartite missions, and identifying action steps for moving forward to address the systematic racism and injustice that continues to shatter the Duke community and our nation. The video also includes the following participants: Kristen Simmons, a 4th year medical student, co-present of Duke Med's Student National Medical Association (SNMA), and also completing her Masters of Theological Studies at Duke; Andrew Spector, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Vice Chair of Inclusion, Diversity and Engagement in the Department of Neurology; Johnna Frierson, PhD, Assistant Dean for Graduate and Postdoctoral Diversity and Inclusion and the Directors of the IDEALS Office; and Kenyon Michael Railey, MD, Assistant Professor in Family Medicine and Community Health and the Medical Director of Duke Physician's Assistant Program. Klotman held this program in place of the originally planned State of the School program to discuss the painful reality of racism across our nation while looking internally at Duke's own institutional racism to actively eliminate systematic and institutional racism at DUSOM and to actively become anti-racist. File types include video (MP4), close captions (SRT), and text (TXT). The digital files date to 2020.
