A conversation with Augustus White, a pioneer for underrepresented minorities

Late last year, I wrote about a memoir, Seeing Patients: Unconscious Bias in Health Care, written by Augustus White III, MD, PhD, the first African-American to graduate from Stanford's medical school. Now our latest 1:2:1 podcast features a conversation with White, a Harvard orthopedic surgeon for whom a new Stanford award honoring diversity work is named after. Among the topics of discussion: growing up in the segregated South, race relations in the U.S., and discrimination in our health-care system.
