Michigan Health Council Provides Free Educational Series to Address Health Equity and Implicit Bias

Supporting health equity is a top priority for Michigan Health Council (MHC). We recognize the importance of supporting underserved populations in the state and are committed to sharing information and creating resources intended to help. Starting today, we’ll be sharing a new series of educational content regarding health equity, health literacy, and implicit bias.

The MHC Implicit Bias Series will be a collection of learning modules intended to address biases around race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, age, and other demographic groups who often fall through the cracks of healthcare systems in Michigan and beyond.

Understanding implicit bias and health equity is especially critical now as we’ve seen higher rates of COVID-19 cases among people of color and a near double mortality rate among Black and Latino people who contract the virus.

Last month, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Directive No. 2020-7 to begin addressing racial disparities in Michigan’s health care system through implicit bias training. The Implicit Bias Series is available free of charge to health care students, professionals, and anyone interested in learning more about implicit bias prior to, or in supplement of, formal training.

The free series does not meet state licensure requirements, unlike our Implicit Bias Training, which does. The free series is available on YouTube. Click the link below to view the series.
