Graphic of a fist and wrench

How do we repair the harms caused by centuries of neglect, exploitation and abuse in clinical encounters? How do we repair the harms caused by teachings and educational content that have justified this mistreatment of people of color by circulating and upholding theories of race, racial difference and racial inferiority?

The REPAIR Project is a multi-institutional anti-racism collaboration with the University of California at San Francisco and communities of color surrounding the University of Kansas Medical Center campuses. Our collective goal is to create positive change and improve equitable health experiences for people of color. What does creating positive change look like?

  • Forming relationships with the communities we serve;
  • Hearing community members’ lived experiences and past and present harms within the medical system through listening sessions;
  • Developing solutions and repairs through revisions to current policies and programs; and
  • Creating new opportunities within our institution that will support and serve people of color.
