Day 1: Black Health Matters
I recognize that racial health disparities are caused by longstanding systemic barriers and injustice, not the individual behaviors or choices of Black people. I understand that by centering the needs of Black people, who are the most underserved people in our healthcare system, we can design a system that works better for everyone. I am committed to doing my part to promote health justice so that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care. I pledge to be informed and engage in anti-racist actions to transform our healthcare system to better serve Black people and achieve health equity for all.
