Hi, Cayley!

Yes, I totally agree with your statement regarding the changes that need to be made surrounding stereotypes within the healthcare system. I am sure Dr. Tweedy already felt out of place throughout this academic journey while working with his white counterparts, but the lack of professionalism he endured further excluded him from the others. I found it interesting when he spoke in the book about how he was treated differently once his own doctor found out he was also a doctor. It just shows that this immature and ignorant mentality extends through medical school and into professional careers, which is unfortunate for their coworkers and patients. Nice post!
