Health Care Providers Support Implicit Bias Training MandateJuly 13, 2020 |

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Health care workers in Michigan will have to get implicit bias training.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order requiring the training partly because of how COVID-19 is hitting Black communities harder.
The training teaches people how to recognize ways they might be biased without knowing it, teaches them ways to adjust their way of thinking and eventually change their behavior.
While COVID-19 has put a spotlight on bias in health care, the problem is more wide-ranging than that.
