Exploring Representation in Anatomy Education Resources

Description 
Future healthcare providers treat a wide variety of patients who vary in gender, skin tone, body habitus, socio-economic status etc. Despite this, anatomy education resources often portray limited demographic representations in their images. This study will explore anatomy education resources to identify which demographics are represented in current material, and make recommendations for the field. The goal of this work is to develop an evidence-based "call to action" for Anatomy publishers to help bring representation to the sector.
