Sometimes we see or hear about things happening to our colleagues, co-workers, trainees and patients that we know are not right, that make us uncomfortable, that we know are harmful. And often we don't know what to do about it. Have you heard of someone being harmed by a microaggression...or worse? Have you wished you could do something to reduce the harm?
