Racism Awareness Week 2022
January 9-13, 2023
On behalf of the Racism Awareness Week (RAW) Committee, we would like to invite you to The Florida State University College of Medicine’s annual RAW!
RAW is a week-long series of events created to raise awareness about racism and highlighting themes surrounding racial disparities, injustice, and inequalities, while relating these issues to the realm of medicine and healthcare. We strongly believe racism is an important topic to be discussed year-round. RAW was organized by a group of medical students who were concerned with “racial flares” and wanted to have conversations regarding racism and its impact in medicine as they were “unsure how to be change agents.” They hoped that RAW would provide fellow students with the tools to understand how racism affects their future patients and likely themselves.
This year, we are kicking off the week with a kickoff and unveiling of the theme of RAW. Join us on Monday, January 9th at 12 pm in the atrium to kick off RAW 2023.
We hope you all take the time and join us in learning about racial disparities, injustice, and inequalities from our amazing lineup of speakers. We are excited to see everyone attend and to gain the tools to understand how to address racism and most importantly, to stimulate impactful changes in building empathy and progress in our communities. RAW will take place from January 9-13, 2023.

Attendees can look forward to giveaways such as scrubs, t-shirts, books, and gift cards!
