Nov. 19 — Nursing professor publishes in medical journal with Yale research team
School of Nursing Associate Clinical Professor Piri Ackerman-Barger, who co-directs the UC Davis Center for a Diverse Healthcare Workforce and is a recognized expert in diversity and inclusion for health professions, recently authored an article published in Academic Medicine, the journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges. The article, “Seeking Inclusion Excellence: Understanding Racial Microagressions as Experienced by Underrepresented Medical and Nursing Students,” highlights the work of Piri and a team of researchers at Yale School of Medicine to better understand how racial microaggressions may affect learning for health professions students. Microaggressions are subtle daily slights and indignities that people from a stigmatized group may experience based on their identity. The research team conducted focus groups and individual interviews from 2017 to 2018 with underrepresented medical and nursing students at Yale and UC Davis.
