Oxfam Canada | February 9, 2016 | Canada Impact

Race Still Has A Place In Modern Medicine

Dr. Boluwaji Ogunyemi | February 9, 2016 | Canada Living
As members of ethnic minority groups have suffered historically because of what has erroneously and malevolently been ascribed as innate inferiority, should physicians avoid reifying race by espousing a "colourblind" practice? It depends.
