Introduction by Dr. Kellie Bryant
Assistant Dean, Clinical Affairs and Simulation Center
Columbia University


Uché Blackstock, MD

Dr. Uché Blackstock is a physician and thought leader on bias and racism in healthcare. Dr. Blackstock founded Advancing Health Equity in 2019 with the goal of partnering with healthcare organizations to dismantle racism in healthcare and to close the gap in racial health inequities.

In 2019, Dr. Blackstock was recognized by Forbes magazine as one of "10 Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazers You Need to Get Familiar With". In 2020, she was one of thirty-one inaugural leaders awarded an unrestricted grant for her advocacy work from the Black Voices for Black Justice Fund.

Her new book, Legacy, is a journey through the critical intersection of racism and healthcare. Legacy is Dr. Blackstock's odyssey—from child to medical student to practicing physician—to finally seizing her own power as a health equity advocate against the backdrop of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
