As I near the end of my doctoral studies of pediatrician's unconscious, or implicit, biases toward the children they treat… I find myself needing your support so I can complete this important work. 

There is good evidence that physicians, including pediatricians who are among the most caring and compassionate of medical providers, unknowingly give different treatment to patients based on social factors, even patients who have the same level of insurance.

Some pediatricians unknowingly treat children and families differently based on family income, level of education and other social differences (religion, ethnicity, race, gender). I need your help to complete my research to increase pediatricians’ awareness and ultimately, to make sure all kids are getting the best possible care. .

I need to raise $2500 to purchase the Implicit Association Test (IAT), which is an integral part of my research. The pediatricians will take the assessment to evaluate their unconscious bias towards children.

Every child deserves great pediatric care regardless of their parents’ level of education or income, or other social factors. Please help me.

Thank you,

Gabrielle
