He writes about his own experience with medical  training and practicing, as well as examining the factors that make it so difficult for African-Americans to seek and afford medical care.

Dr. Damon Tweedy has published articles about race and medicine in the Annals of Internal Medicine  and the Journal of the American Medical Association. His columns and op-eds have appeared in the New York Times and other newspapers. Dr. Tweedy is a graduate of Duke Medical School and Yale Law School.
