BLACK MAN IN A WHITE COAT by Damon Tweedy

September 13, 2015

Damon Tweedy spoke about his book, Black Man in a White Coat, at Politics & Prose on Sunday, September 13, 2015.

In his first book, Tweedy, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke and a practitioner at the Durham VA Medical Center, explores the significance of race in the medical world. Tracing his own experience as a medical student on a full scholarship—who at one point is mistaken for a maintenance worker—Dr. Tweedy exposes some of his profession’s outdated assumptions, while also showing the very real impact of socio-economic factors on the health of black Americans.
