Addressing racial disparities in health begins upstream with racial equity in society
“Our nation is at a crossroads, but one thing is clear – the health of our country depends on the health of all individuals in it, regardless of income, gender, or race. ACPM is committed to doing our part to promote and advance health and safety for all populations. On a community level, there are several options that can be taken to maintain support. As preventive medicine specialists, I call on all my colleagues, more than 10,000 across the country, to continue to bridge the gap by encouraging policymakers to strive to eradicate structural racism and inequalities in our cities and states.”
