Leading medical organizations like the American Medical Association, the American

College of Physicians, and the American Academy of Pediatrics have gone on record

to declare racism and hate crimes a public health issue. Statements and declarations of

this sort are a much needed first step in attacking issues of systemic racial oppression

such as racial bias in health care and biomedical research. But it is not enough. What

are researchers' role in anti-racism? How does a researcher be anti-racist and not

contribute to poor public health? In this presentation I use examples of medical research

and scholarly publications to offer ethical guidance for researchers on how to participate

in and produce anti-racist work that grapples with past abuses of people of color and

contributes to a new anti-racist body of scientific work.
