Session description

Please join us for a live webinar on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 10:00 AM PST for a timely and informative talk about What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You... and Your Patients: The Role of Implicit Bias in Birthing and Breastfeeding Support.  with Nekisha Killings

Every day, every interaction we have is colored by the inherent and implicit biases that we each carry. We see the world through lenses that are tinted by our own lived experiences, the experiences of those who are dear to us, information we have been exposed to, and systems that we live within. No one is immune. Learn how you can both identify and dismantle the subconscious impressions and beliefs about your patient base to better provide empathic and  impactful care.
