“This campaign will work towards developing a response strategy BEFORE a microaggression appears”
The sciences are no longer safe from the left’s agenda. Even medicine is being targeted.

Georgetown takes ‘A.C.T.I.O.N.’ against ‘microaggressions in medicine’
A Georgetown University department will be starting a “Microaggressions in Medicine” initiative this winter, aiming to teach students how to respond to microaggressions.
The School of Medicine at Georgetown along with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion will be sponsoring a “poster campaign,” with an aim at educating students on what to do about microaggressions.
“This campaign will work towards developing a response strategy BEFORE a microaggression appears, and building efficacy in faculty, staff, students, and trainees who must respond in real time to microaggressors,” the page states.
According to the Georgetown webpage, while microaggressions are a “brief” insult, they can have a “macro” affect.
“Microaggressions can have a macro affect, particularly when considering the cumulative burden for individuals and organizations over time,” the webpage states. “Microaggressions show up everywhere in society including in our classrooms, clinics, hallways, on social media, in our neighborhood watch app, and at the grocery store!”
The poster campaign gives examples of possible microaggressions that someone in the medicinal field could encounter, such as “aren’t you a little old to be in medical school?” “They yelled HIV as a diagnosis after learning he was a gay male,” and “I’m assuming English wasn’t the first language for some of you.”
