Ross Hall 116

The GW School of Medicine & Health Sciences Office of Diversity & Inclusion invites you to participate in REAL Talk tomorrow, Tuesday, October 22nd. SMHS students, faculty, and staff will engage in a discussion guided by ODI staff about The 1619 Project from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery.

We will focus on essays on medical inequality and a short fiction piece on the Tuskegee syphilis experiment. Each article and story challenges readers to reframe their understanding of U.S. history by considering 1619 as the start of this nation's story.

Please bring your lunch. Snacks are provided!
