Health Informatics: Diversity and Anti-Racism in Health Informatics

A guide to library resources and research in health and personal health informatics

Getting Started

This is a page with resources for promoting anti-racism and supporting diversity and inclusion in Health Informatics. On this guide, there are five sections, each with a selection of resources and a link to a larger list: Articles & Web Resources, Books, Podcasts, Organizations, and Support at Northeastern

The resources listed here are not comprehensive, and they inevitably reflect the biases of the various creators. They are intended to provide guidance to a wide variety of resources within Health Informatics. This page is by no means exhaustive and will be continuously updated. Please reach out to Luesoni Kuck at l.kuck@northeastern.edu or use this form to provide feedback and suggestions.
