The WSMA and WSMA Foundation invite you to join your colleagues for our
popular Health Equity M&M Webinar Series. Think “morbidity and mortality,”
but with a focus on health equity. Free for WSMA members and offering CME
credit, 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
This series fosters a space conducive to building a community of
