    Dr. Damon Tweedy’s book, White Man in a Black Coat: A Doctor’s Reflections on Race and Medicine, is a New York Times bestseller and is on many “top ten” best book lists for 2015. It represents Dr. Tweedy’s passionate and profound memoir of his experience grappling with race, bias, and the unique health problems of black Americans.

    The book follows his path from a working-class, church-going, abstinence-preaching family to his entry as a medical student on scholarship at Duke where he feels underprepared in comparison to the privileged graduates of schools like Harvard and Yale.

    Dr. Tweedy is an assistant professor of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center and staff physician at the Durham VA Medical Center.
