Mimi V. Chapman, MSW, PhD
Yo veo salud: A visual intervention to counter bias among health care professionals

RSVP to sw-rsvp@austin.utexas.edu

“Implicit biases” may shape health care providers’ behaviors thereby affecting care for patients of color. Implicit bias is a problem for many marginalized groups in the United States as well as for new immigrants from many countries. Yo Veo Salud uses patient-generated and professionally created images to engage health care providers in conversations about ethnicity and migration. This intervention has been successfully piloted using both implicit measures and explicit self-report measures.

About the speaker: Mimi V. Chapman, MSW, PhD, is a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work. Her work focuses on migration and immigrant experience and bias among “high intensity professionals.” With the Envisioning Health team she develops and tests visual and arts-based interventions such as Yo Veo Salud to create more welcoming environments for new immigrants. These interventions are delivered to public schools, pediatric, internal, and psychiatric medical providers.
