SPECIAL: Lorenzo Norris, MD, welcomes fourth-year psychiatry resident Brandon C. Newsome, MD, for a discussion on race relations as a physician in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who was killed when a white police officer kneeled on his neck during an arrest. 

Dr. Newsome was raised in Alabama and currently lives in Boston. He shares his experiences with Dr. Norris in an important conversation. 

The pair discuss what their patients are experiencing and what they're experiencing as black physicians. 

Dr. Norris is a consultation-liaison psychiatrist and medical school dean affiliated with George Washington University, Washington (@GWSMHS). Dr. Newsome will begin a fellowship in July at Children’s National Hospital (@ChildrensNatl).
