MGH Recovery Month Kick-off - “Developing an Anti-Racist Recovery Movement: Deconstructing and Challenging Existing Policies and Practices”
This discussion will critically evaluate how academic medicine, research and policy has systematically excluded Black, Indigenous and other Persons of Color (BIPOC) from the recovery movement. Researcher and Addiction Psychiatrist, Dr. Ayana Jordan will provide examples of how to provide addiction treatment and conduct research in a culturally-affirming manner. While, Vice President of Policy for Legal Action Center, Tracie Gardner, will provide an overview of the challenges of ensuring Black voices in the current recovery “movement” and why BIPOC voices must drive the creation and implementation of good public policy.
