ABOUT THIS BOOK
Gus White grew up on the wrong side of the color line in Jim Crow Tennessee, then became the first black medical student at Stanford and a top surgeon at Harvard. Throughout his career he has witnessed unconscious bias against nonwhite patients. Seeing Patients shares these sobering stories and outlines concrete solutions to medical inequity.
