About the documentary

Hosted by Dr. Jon Hallberg and Dr. Tseganesh Selameab, “Art + Medicine: Speaking of Race” connects the arts and healthcare through the power of storytelling. In this one-hour special, physicians share their experiences with race, racism, disparities in health care and representation, and anti-racist efforts in the medical community.

The film is a co-production of TPT-Twin Cities PBS and the Center for the Art of Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
