Dr. Tiffani Johnson Interviewed on WHYY’s RadioTimes about Implicit Bias Research
Numerous research studies have confirmed that minority children face severe disparities in their health and well-being compared to their white peers. These disparities stem from a number of significant factors such as physicians’ implicit biases, a shortage of black and Latino doctors and poor access to high-quality health care. PolicyLab researcher Tiffani Johnson, MD, MSc, recently spoke with WHYY’s RadioTimes—along with Thomas Jefferson University’s Shanaye Jeffers, MD, and Drexel University's Theodore Corbin, MD, MPP—about how to address these racial disparities in our health care system, her research focused on the impact of implicit bias and her own experiences as a black medical professional.
