Health inequalities. More sociology, than biology

Run time: 13:00 – 14:00
When we think about health and health outcomes, we often think of a person's biology as the main determinant. Surprisingly today many still see “race” as an essential part of that biology. But race is more about sociology than biology and that misunderstanding can lead to delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis and poor treatment. 
Join Winston Morgan from the University of East London to understand how scientists and medical professionals could be potentially failing many minoritised communities because of outdated ideas about race and medicine.
