This symposium will focus on uncovering structural racism and implicit bias in aging and other identity intersections that is embedded in research, interprofessional practice, education and training. Learning Objectives: (1) describe implicit bias and structural racism and its contribution to health inequities in older adults; (2) improve identification of implicit bias in research focused on older adults and gain knowledge of and apply tools to address those biases; (3) recognize examples of implicit bias in clinical care for older adults and take steps towards becoming an advocate provider; and (4) disseminate novel approaches to interrupt implicit bias in health professions education, clinical care and research.
