Community Book Club
Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People
Moffitt students worked together to facilitate a book club with community members and partners at the San Jose Mission in Dover, Florida. Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People, explores the hidden biases we all carry based on our exposure to varying cultural attitudes about things like gender, race, ethnicity, social class and religion. The students led discussions that looked at bias through the lens of health disparities.
