Why Your Doctor Should Care About Social Justice

This Ted Talk by Mary Bassett speaks about how, although doctors help individuals in various ways, they can STILL do more. They can do more by acknowledging and recognizing social injustices and structural inequalities within the medical system. Furthermore, she urges medical workers to work towards change within this system. She touches upon her experiences during the AIDS pandemic and what she has witnessed and says these inequalities still exist today and should not be overlooked.
