A Message From the EmergeOrtho Triad Region Physicians

EmergeOrtho Triad Region wishes to acknowledge the pain and hardship that many are experiencing during these unprecedented and troubling times. Much has transpired in our country and community, since we witnessed the murder of George Floyd and the effects of the relentless, centuries-long victimization of people of color through bigotry, hatred, and systemic racism. Over the past 2 weeks, we have seen people from all over the globe, of all races, and walks of life stand together and declare with one voice that racism and bigotry will no longer be tolerated.

As health care workers, we understand that while we cannot solve the medical, economic, and cultural crises we are facing, we have an obligation to support health care equality for all people. The Covid-19 pandemic and the recent murder of George Floyd have brought to light continued racial disparities in the United States. Racism has led to the unnecessary and heinous deaths of too many individuals of color, including most recently George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. Disproportionate Covid-19 deaths of African-Americans are due, in part, to longstanding health inequities. While we recognize that we do not have all the answers, we accept our obligation to stand with those who advocate for equal justice for all under the law. We strive to listen and empower those who offer solutions to the evil of racism. Together, we must advocate that those who have the ability to effect change utilize that power to implement those solutions immediately.

We encourage everyone to remain safe, reflective, and hopeful that we will create a more equitable future to Emerge Stronger. Healthier. Better.
