Erica Francesca Parks, PhD, PA-S – SMU Physician Assistant Program

This talk will explore a common practice in medicine – the practice of separating treatment groups, normal lab values, and categories of risk along the fault lines of race.  We will explore the question "what is race?" and talk about examples of common racial profiling practices in medicine.  Then, using examples from the 2014 JNC8 hypertension treatment guidelines as a case study, we will discuss how the scientific and medical communities produce and reinforce racial categories, and the potential for harm that is inherent to this practice.
