This week we’ll be joined by award-winning British science journalist and broadcaster Angela Saini to discuss the resurgence of race science, the persistent myths that still exist about race in medicine and how they are manifesting during the coronavirus pandemic.

Join us for Conversations Beyond Borders on:
Friday 22 May
12:30 - 13:30 (BST)

At TEDxLondon we are extremely privileged to have access to a diverse network of experts. And although there is no shortage of news coverage around COVID-19, we want to bring our community insights that go beyond the headlines, find answers to the questions we’re all asking and examine issues that haven’t had as much attention.

Every week, we are creating a virtual space for our community to come together, explore ideas worth spreading and help us all feel a little less alone. Over the past seven episodes we have brought together over 5000 viewers from 46 different countries.

Hosted by TEDxLondon Director and Curator Maryam Pasha, these weekly webinars will be available live via Zoom and live streamed on our Facebook page.
