Jefferson medical oncologist Edith Mitchell, M.D., FACP, works on diversity efforts as associate director of Diversity Services for the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson.

In a recent WHYY Radio interview, Dr. Mitchell shares some of her experiences with African American patients and gives her perspective on race and medicine today. She believes that listening to patients is crucial and says that patients are more likely to follow doctor’s orders and stick with a care plan when they’re comfortable with their physician.
