Testimonials


“ Having Dr. Blackstock present on Unconscious Bias as part of monthly Continuing Education seminars was a revelation. Dr. Blackstock presented material on explicit and implicit bias in healthcare in an innovative, informative and thought-provoking way. Many of the participants commented on how much they appreciated Dr. Blackstock’s style of presentation, and how she made what can be a difficult conversation on racism and oppression very accessible. I will definitely consider her for more programs in the future.”

Dr. Blackstock has a wonderful way of making the complex concepts of bias and its impact seem both accessible and urgent at the same time. She is an engaging speaker who uses data to make, but not overwhelm her point. I believe she is creating real change among those who participate in her workshops.
