Dr. Cunningham advances justice, equity, diversity and inclusion as a researcher and medical educator. Her research broadly focuses on race and medicine. Her current study aims to reduce racial disparities in healthcare by training White physicians to safely and effectively talk to Black patients about experiences of racism. As co-director of the DEI Thread in the Medical School, she partners with faculty, staff, and students to increase health equity content in the curriculum and to cultivate antiracist learning environments.
