Anti-Black racism and behavioral medicine: confronting the past to envision the future.
Breland JY, Stanton MV. Anti-Black racism and behavioral medicine: confronting the past to envision the future. Translational behavioral medicine. 2022 Jan 18; 12(1).
Behavioral medicine research and practice have not traditionally acknowledged the detrimental effects of anti-Black racism (and other forms of systemic oppression) on health, interventions, or research. This commentary describes four ways that behavioral medicine researchers and clinicians can address the past to envision the future of behavioral medicine to promote equitable health for all: 1) name anti-Black racism, 2) ensure interventions address structural inequities, 3) advocate for systemic change, and 4) change expectations for publications.
