Episode 10: Diversity, Part 7 [Round Table]

We conclude our series on diversity in the physical therapy workforce and education system by finishing the round table discussion with our guests Dr. Andrea Moore, Dr. Robert Burns, Dr. Leython Williams, and Bana Odeh, SPT. 

In this episode, we discuss navigating uncomfortable situations to call out each other for insensitive behaviors and recognizing our own blind spots in dealing with different cultures and ethnicities.

We also discuss APTA Michigan’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee and the National Association of Black Physical Therapists (NABPT) – Detroit chapter.
