February is Black History month!
A Need for Change
Join the African American community in grieving the murder of George Floyd and other Black people due to institutional racism. And demand change. The challenges of systemic and individual racism are deep-seated, and real. We see the impacts in all health issues where Blacks are more likely to die of their disease than whites and yet again today with the uneven distribution of disease burden in COVID-19.
