Wokeness—the intense preoccupation with racialism and gender identity—is a growing distraction for many of America’s critical institutions, often the result of overbearing and illiberal "diversity, equity, and inclusion" programs. Leaders in many K-12 schools, universities, government agencies, and private for-profit and not-for-profit organizations increasingly inject progressive political ideology in daily operations and, more perniciously, insist that individual employees express adherence to its tents. Unfortunately, America's hospitals, clinics, medical schools, and public health agencies—where so-called social justice and “anti-bias” efforts threaten to undermine medical innovation and the quality of patient care—are proving just as, if not more, vulnerable to the woke mania.

While growing numbers of medical professionals see the hazards of wokeness, precious few have acted to oppose it. The Manhattan Institute (MI), home to scholars, journalists, activists, and practitioners who are willing to confront society’s most vexing and controversial problems, is working to change that. We will host a conference in New York City on December 13, elevating important voices in medicine and equipping practitioners, patients, administrators, and policymakers with the tools they need to challenge woke medicine and advance clear, pragmatic solutions in its place.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, former Associate Dean for Curriculum, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine; Board Chair, Do No Harm
  • Heather Mac Donald, Thomas W. Smith Fellow, Manhattan Institute; Contributing Editor, City Journal
  • Kristina Rasmussen, Executive Director, Do No Harm
  • Leor Sapir, Fellow, Manhattan Institute
  • Sally Satel, Practicing psychiatrist and lecturer, Yale Medical School; Senior Fellow, American Enterprise Institute
  • Aaron Sibarium, Associate Editor, Washington Free Beacon

Agenda and additional speakers to be announced soon.
