On this episode of “Jazzed About Work”, Bev Jones talks with lawyer, law professor and health-care analyst, Dayna Bowen Matthew about racial inequality in the workplace.

Matthew just released a new book Just Medicine – A Cure for Racial Inequality in American Health Care published by the New York University Press.

She claims that African Americans and Latinos suffer from unconscious racial and ethnic biases by physicians, institutional providers and even the patients themselves. This implicit bias often leads to unintentional stereotyping and disparate care from Caucasians.

Matthew is a professor at the University of Virginia. She also has co-founded the Colorado Health Equity Project.
