Has bias or discrimination (due to race, ethnicity, gender identity, or sexual orientation) created challenges in healthcare?  We want to hear from you!

We are collecting anonymous stories about bias experienced during patient-doctor communication. We welcome stories from the perspectives of patients, companions, health care providers and others.

We will use your experiences to find common themes and patterns in communication between patients and providers and help us understand better how to design a tool that can improve this communication.
