Structural Racism and Violence is a Public Health Crisis
June 2nd, 2020
While many social determinants of health impact health disparities, the role of structural racism and violence has now come into greater focus and must finally be addressed. Our profession and faith guide us to acknowledge the inherent worth of our fellow brothers and sisters and reject racism:
“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another” (Qur’an 49:13).
