Last month, Do No Harm program manager Laura Morgan reported how the Mayo Clinic is spending tens of millions of dollars on ideological training for its faculty and staff. Seems the organization has plenty of money left for indoctrination of the clinicians in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, as evidenced by the Grand Rounds session it held on October 11.
Titled Reframing Anti-Black Racism and White Supremacy as Illness and presented by non-clinician Dante D. King, the grand rounds session aimed to:
- Explore the historical, legal, academic, and scientific foundations of structural racism and anti-blackness in America.
- Describe anti-black racism and psychosocial, psycho-political, and psycho-economic cultural and organizational properties.
- Identify the modern-day impacts of legalized anti-blackness and white supremacy in American culture and institutions.
In addition to serving on the faculties of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and the UC San Francisco School of Medicine, King produces books such as The 400 Year Holocaust: White America’s Legal, Psychopathic, and Sociopathic Black Genocide and the Revolt Against Critical Race Theory, and invents divisive concepts as “an antiracism strategist.” One such project is “Blackademics,” which has a mission of “educating children and adults about anti-Blackness, White supremacy, and other forms of racism.”
On the heels of Mayo’s RISE for Equity conference, King recently completed another multi-day event for the Mayo Clinic with activist Robin DiAngelo called Developing Anti-Racism Leadership Competencies to Achieve Inclusive Practices and Health Equity. For $495, participants received more anti-racist rhetoric “to achieve racial equity at both levels of organizational change and individual leaderships practices.”
Mayo Clinic apparently still believes it still contains “systemic and institutionalized” biases and continues to lay out an astounding number of financial resources to pay radical activists – who have no medical credentials – to badger its healthcare professionals into adopting their ideologies. It’s further evidence that Mayo no longer deserves to hold its once lofty position as a respected academic medical institution that places patients above politics.
Is your healthcare organization spending money on so-called “training” meant to indoctrinate instead of educate? Do No Harm wants to hear from you, and you may remain anonymous if you wish.
