Race, Bias, and Ethical Considerations for ALS Research and Care
Chelsey R. Carter, PhD, MPH
Assistant Professor of Public Health, Yale University
How do race and bias influence the experience of living with neurodegenerative disease? This talk reveals how Black Americans living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) experience diagnoses, treatment, and care. Dr. Carter will examine how bias has harmful biological effects and introduce the concept of health omissions to understand health disparities among non-white persons impacted by ALS.
