A recent incident on a Delta Airlines flight has sparked sharp criticism of professional racial discrimination and a tidal wave of social media response. Dr. Tamika Cross, a physician and black woman, alleged in a social media post that on the flight she volunteered to tend to a sick patient, but a member of the flight crew dismissed her and said they were looking for "actual physicians and nurses."

Cross's Facebook post has spurred thousands of comments and the #WhatDoctorsLookLike hashtag. At the Oct. 28 Friday Forum, local physicians will discuss discrimination, profiling, diversity and equity in health care.

The panel will include:

Nicholas Robbins, a Portland native who will graduate from OHSU's medical school in 2017 and will specialize in emergency medicine.
Dr. Stephanie Maya Lopez is an associate professor of psychiatry and the associate director of the Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship Training Program at OHSU. She is president of the Oregon Psychiatric Physicians Association.
Dr. David Grunkemeier is a gastroenterologist The Oregon Clinic.
Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia is co-founder of The Capuia Foundation, executive director of OHSU’s Avel Gordly Center for Healing and assistant professor of psychiatry.
