We are facing unprecedented and challenging times in 2020. Global events have exhausted our physical and emotional banks, and at times it may seem like things may never change. Feet may grow tired when we march through the streets, and hope is hard to find when we consume sensationalist media, but please know that any notions that things will never get better are simply not true. If these notions were true, then the civil rights movement would have meant nothing. If they were true, then slavery would still exist in our country. Rest assured that our voices are being heard and have come together to change history for the better.
We at Mosaic in Medicine stand in full support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the current protests occurring across the country and globe. Our mission has always been to provide a safe haven for underrepresented voices in health care and medicine to be heard. Given the fact that racism is a major social determinant of health, we will continue to do our part through our mission and our practice against racism, as leaders in health care and medicine. Stay safe out there and do not lose hope.
