Joint Society Election Statement

Dear Colleagues,

 

As we reflect on the outcome of last week's election, regardless of our stance on the results and perception of its impact, let us remember that our strength as health care providers and scientists lies not in our political party affiliations, but rather in our ability to be catalysts for change. Our collective vision to provide high-quality care, eradicate health disparities, and produce science that translates to better care for all, has and will continue to positively influence the health of our nation, communities, and patients. 

In unity,
Intersociety Group on Diversity
