Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections on Race and Medicine

Setup

When Damon Tweedy begins medical school, he envisions a bright future where his segregated, working-class background will become largely irrelevant. Instead, he finds that he has joined a new world where race is front and center. In his New York Times bestselling debut effort, Tweedy – now a psychiatrist at Duke University – explores the challenges confronting black doctors, and the disproportionate health burdens faced by black patients, ultimately seeking a way forward to better treatment and more compassionate care.
