The NGP DEI committee encourages the neuroscience community to participate in the third annual Black In Neuro Week, happening this week! Please see below for a message from Black In Neuro with additional details and a link to register.

We have reserved Whitehead 600 (the conference room) for the virtual events listed below so that we can tune in together as a community. Please feel free to stop by, even if you can’t stay for the whole time or will arrive late.

  • Neuroracism Panel (Wednesday, 1-2 PM ET): Learn how racism translates into misdiagnoses or lack of diagnosis in neurology and psychiatry.
  • Neuroracism Journal Club (Wednesday, 5-6 PM ET): Discuss the recent paper, “Addressing racial and phenotypic bias in human neuroscience methods” with Dr. Jasmine Kwasa.
