    Systemic racism is a topic that we have covered before on PT Inquest, but it has recently become the focus of worldwide attention. In this episode, we talked with Tim Vidale and Deidra Debnam from the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy's (AASPT) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to discuss some of the current conversations around race. We hope that this discussion can help give some insight and initial guidance for individuals and PT organizations to push positive and effective change regarding DEI.

Excellent way to stay a breast of current literature & build critical thinking skills. Side effect after 2 years of listening those who praise reki masters may tell you it has clouded your judgement though.
