What options do local students have when reporting sexual misconduct? We discuss what resources are available once they've reported and what role the school and city police play in investigations.
From a professor confusing him for a handyman to patients refusing to be treated by a black doctor, Dr. Damon Tweedy has been intimately involved in the intersection between race and healthcare.

We talk with Dr. Tweedy about his new book, “Black Man in a White Coat,” and what being black means for your health.
