American Medical Association

  • The nation's largest doctors' group is holding its annual policymaking meeting amid backlash over its sweeping plan to eliminate structural racism and bias in health care. The dissenters are a vocal minority of physicians, including some white Southern delegates. They accuse the American Medical Association of reverse discrimination. Dr. Gerald Harmon is a white physician from South Carolina who becomes AMA president at the meeting that started Friday. He says the plan is not up for debate.
