Antiracism, Diversity, and Inclusion in Medicine: Race and Medicine, Social Issues, and Other Topics


This Race and Medicine, Social Issues, and Other Topics tab in the Antiracism, Diversity, and Inclusion in Medicine LibGuide was created by faculty and staff in the Samuel J. Wood Library at Weill Cornell Medicine.


This section is not a comprehensive list of all available resources, but is meant to introduce the Weill Cornell Medicine community to the topics. The list includes scholarly e-books, books, web resources, videos, and podcasts.


The Antiracism, Diversity, and Inclusion in Medicine LibGuide will continue to be updated. If you have suggestions for additional resources, please contact
