How Data Visualization Can Perpetuate Inequality

Friday, March 25th, 2016

“Sometimes, whether we know it or not, the choices we make when we visualize data can reinforce and even perpetuate racial disparity and it’s time that we talk about it. The lull of the computer monitor and the belief we are just working with numbers can make us lose sight of the fact that there are people behind this data who have given of themselves, sometimes unwillingly, and that we have a responsibility to them when we visualize.” ~ Stephanie Evergreen

New roles for medical librarians such as: conducting systematic reviews to inform patient care decision making, designing health literacy programs and services, teaching the principles of evidence-based medicine, and creating research data management services will be emphasized.
