While developing the DID-ACT learning unit about cognitive errors and biases, we came across the this great video on YouTube by Dr. Joanna Kempner about gender biases and the underrepresentation of especially women of color in healthcare. Stereotypes are still deeply incorporated into our culture and as Dr. Kempner illustrates they are still visible in (medical) advertisement, healthcare institutions, or workplaces. Although women have finally been included into clinical trials in the 1990s in the US, funding for diseaseas that are more prevalent in women is still very low, which also results in less or lower quality treatment. For more information and details, we highly recommend the video by Dr. Kempner:
The aforementioned learning unit for students is publicly available in our learning managment system: Biases and cognitive errors – an introduction.
