Upcoming CPD Webinars
Continuing professional development is the process of lifelong learning in
which physicians acquire, through formal and informal activities, the
medical and non-medical competencies they need to improve their ability to
practice medicine and provide effective patient care. Engaging in
continuing professional development is a professional obligation and also
a prerequisite for enhancing the quality of health care. The WSMA offers
continuing professional development as part of our commitment to
supporting physicians and physician assistants on their lifelong learning
journey. Questions? Contact Brendan Cox at email@example.com or
Health Equity M&M Webinar Series
Friday, April 14, 2023 from noon to 1 p.m.
The WSMA and WSMA Foundation invite you to join your colleagues for the
next session of our popular Health Equity M&M Webinar Series. Think
‘morbidity and mortality,’ but with a focus on health equity. Free for
WSMA members, this webinar series is held on the second Friday of
even-numbered months at noon.
These Health Equity M&M discussions provide a framework for
recognizing and examining our own biases and identifying the ways systemic
racism exists in our organizations. You’ll have new tools to think
critically and identify when to advocate for your patients from
historically marginalized communities, ensuring they receive the highest
quality clinical care. The Health Equity M&M discussions serve as one
of many mechanisms to address forms of systemic marginalization of
patients. During each webinar, Edwin Lindo, JD, facilitates case-based discussions.
Professor Lindo is the assistant dean of social and health justice in the Office of
Healthcare Equity, an associate teaching professor in the department of
family medicine, and an adjunct associate teaching professor in the
department of bioethics and humanities at the University of Washington
School of Medicine. He teaches, presents, and writes on issues of race and
racism within the field of medicine and greater society. He is
internationally recognized as a conscious voice for racial and social
