The School of Nursing will host a series of events this summer to discuss the effects of systemic racism on society, according to a nursing school release Thursday.

Sandra Davis, the nursing school’s assistant dean for diversity, equity and inclusion, will host the series – called Continuing the Conversation – every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. EDT throughout the summer, the release states. Nursing students, faculty, staff and alumni can join the online meetings via WebEx, according to the release.

“We’re making the uncomfortable comfortable,” Davis said. “Race and racism have always been such taboo subjects, but in order to get anywhere we need to talk to each other.”
