How physicians can be activists
“We dealt with the death, uncertainty, and fear of COVID-19 with a stiff upper lip. But our hearts broke when George Floyd was murdered by the police on May 25.

Racially directed violence by the police is a public health problem. Clinicians cannot be silent. Clinicians will not be silent.”
