On Wednesday, June 10, the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) and the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology (HST) community will participate in the #ShutDownAcademia, #ShutDownStem, and#Strike4BlackLives movements by taking a day away from our regular activities to reflect on injustices and systemic racism, to educate ourselves on racial bias, and to brainstorm concrete ideas for our community, in order to meaningfully confront history and enact change.
