The recent murder of George Floyd, among others, has once again brought to the forefront discourse on the deep-rooted, structural obstacles and mistreatment that black people face. Those roots have grown into our own profession as well, so join the BTK team this week as we discuss the serious topic of systemic racism in surgery and how we can begin to overcome it.
